They Grow Up So Fast

“He is talking more and more every single day!  He’s gotten a lot of boo boos and I always kiss him where he got hurt and say “all better Jakey”.  He now kisses me and says, “all better mommy”.  He’s definitely growing up!  Andrea had a cap and gown for his ESGH  ECI graduation.  I just wanted to thank you again for all your help!!  Jacob and I truly appreciate it tremendously!!” Screenshot_20190618-124740_Messages

Easter Seals ECI Infant Development program is parent-driven and focuses on enhancing the development of children ages birth to 36 months with developmental delays or disabilities. It is our goal to give families the tools they need to make a significant impact on the development of their children.

We provide families with certified or licensed professionals who come into the child’s natural environment, as a part of the routine where the child learns, plays and lives, and use their skills to help in the progression of reaching the child’s developmental milestones. At the same time the therapists are modeling and teaching the parent/caregiver the skills needed to work by themselves with the child. We believe that parents/caregivers are the most important influences in a child’s life and should be an active player in their child’s development.

Every child who qualifies for the program will be assigned a service coordinator who will coordinate all the individualized services for the child in addition to being the main point of contact for the family. Other services provided may include physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, developmental services, nutrition services, respite services, and assistive technology assistance. If there is a concern about vision or hearing, we will make referrals to the appropriate location to see that your child’s needs are being met.
