Early Intervention – Suzanne Janasov/Trish Thibert/Chrissy Daniels/Elaine Statti – Speech Therapist/Christie Parker – Occupational Therapist
Fayette County Board of DD early intervention Core Team follows the state and federal philosophy that supports evidence-based research by working with the child and the family in natural environments to provide coaching during every day routines. Eligibility is determined by an evaluation and assessment if your child has a diagnosed disability, delay or medical condition. Each family has access to the core team and a primary service provider that works with your child on your schedule addressing your concerns. We are also happy to offer a play-based experience once a week in our early childhood center that incorporates this philosophy. The primary service provider along with other peers will contribute to the confidence and competence building in your child while they have fun and get to experience many activities.
Below is a short video introduction to the early intervention (EI) system in Ohio from DODD developed in partnership with Cuyahoga and Summit Counties.
