Early Start Services are provided in the home on a weekly basis. Early start Services are for children from 0-3 years. Services are provided until the child turns 3 years of age.

Children who qualify are those who are found to have a 33% delay in one area of development during assessment.

Areas of development include:
Gross Motor, Fine motor, Cognitive, Receptive Language, Expressive Language, Social/Emotional, and Self-Help.

Any parent who has a concern about their child, in regards to their development, can contact KRC to get their child assessed.

If a child qualifies for services, an interventionist is sent to the home to carry out the intervention plan. Intervention is play based and is made so that the child is having fun as they learn. All areas of development are continuously worked on, however, intervention is focused on those areas where the child needs the most help.
