Early Intervention

The Early Intervention Program (EIP) can help children (birth to three years) who are not learning, playing, growing, talking or walking like other children their age in their natural environment. Big Apple Children Services works with families and our team of qualified professionals to set meaningful goals for children and create a plan to help them meet those goals. The earlier in life a child starts our program, the sooner they can develop the functional skills they need in their natural environment.
