Birth to Three
Early Intervention System


The Birth to Three Early Intervention System supports a coordinated system of Early Intervention as outlined in Part C of the Individuals With Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004 (IDEA). This system provides resource and policy information concerning services for children ages birth to three years old with developmental disabilities or delays, and their families. Children and their families receive early intervention supports and services by Child Development Watch within the Division of Public Health.

Child Development Watch (CDW) provides assessments, service coordination, Individualized Family Service Plans, and referrals to community services, to families of children with disabilities or developmental delays. The system assists families in coordinating services based on the needs of the child and their family. Eligibility is based on diagnosis and degree of developmental delay, not on the family's income.

Birth to Three staff provide overall management for the system and ensure compliance with the federal requirements of IDEA, which provides funding to help support the system.

Major partners, through agreements and contracts, are the Delaware Department of Education; Department of Services for Children, Youth and Their Families; and other community providers.
