Early On

Early On is a system designed to coordinate early intervention and other services for families who have children (ages 0 – 36 months) experiencing developmental delays or who have disabilities.

If you suspect your child has a developmental delay or an associated medical condition or disability, please contact Amy Brauer, Early Head Start Program Manager.

What is Early On?

Early On is a network of services for children who are developmentally delayed, or at risk of developing delays because of an established condition, or who have a disability.

Early On services children from birth to 36 months of age. There are no income restrictions for eligibility.

Early On’s extensive services include in-home evaluations, referring families for specialized care, and acting as a service coordinator.

Early On Service Coordinator assists families in locating financial resources, if necessary. There is no charge to families for the in-home evaluation, Individual Family Service Plan (IFSP) development or service coordination.

Early On is just a phone call away. If you have concerns about a young child’s development, take the first step by contacting Amy Brauer, Early Head Start Program Manager, within St. Joseph County or 1-800-EARLYON.
