Refer children that show a possible delay or disability to the appropriate agency to be placed on an Individual Family Services Plan or Individual Education Plan according to age. Follow all children referred and placed on plans to provide Intervention services to the families. Provide monthly parent meetings with issues and concerns that affect parents enrolled in our program.
