Early Childhood Intervention means finding specific ways to help a child become as functional as possible. The first step of early intervention is evaluation. Once a child is evaluated, he/she can receive the appropriate type of treatment that he/she needs. Sometimes, getting your child help at an early age can enable him/her to reach his/her developmental milestone on target or close to target – to catch up to his/her peers.


For children ages three through five, you can contact the GADoE Preschool Special Education Program to learn about resources available.

Your local school system can also provide diagnostic assessments and services for children ages 3-5. You can contact them directly for more information.
