Who do I contact first for help?
state decides which of its agencies will be the lead agency in charge
of early intervention services for infants and toddlers with special needs.
In your state, the first contact person may be an Early Interventionist
(an early childhood specialist working with infants and toddlers), someone
with the lead agency, or someone in your state's Child Find office.
To find out who can help you in your area, contact the person listed on
your State Resource Sheet under "Programs for Infants and Toddlers
with Disabilities." If you don't have a State Resource Sheet, call
NICHCY at 1-800-695-0285 (Voice/TT). Explain that you want to find out
about early intervention services for your child and ask for a name in
Development Web website and click on any state. This will take you
to another page which lists all the states.
