87. Who would want an Early Intervention evaluation?

Any parent of a child born preterm (before 38 weeks gestation), and any parent who has a concerns regarding how his or her child is walking, talking, playing, learning and behaving should consider an EI evaluation. Each child is entitled to a no-cost full developmental evaluation which will determine if your child is eligible for services. Since multiples and babies born preterm are at higher risk of developmental delays, these infant should be evaluated for developmental milestones periodically during the first few years of life such as at 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, 1 year, 18 months, 2 years and 3 years. Even if your child(ren) have reached the developmental milestones at one of the visits, continuing to have them reevaluated at the suggested ages above is critical since every age and stage presents its own set of developmental challenges.
