Program Philosophy:

Who Can Participate In YI Services:

  • Children referred to Young Interventions, Inc. through the Regional Center and qualify for services based on assessments for eligibility. If  a child is eligible for Regional Center services Young Interventions provides intervention at no charge to the family

 

  • Children from birth to 6 yrs of age who do not qualify for Regional Center services, may directly purchase services from Young Interventions, Inc.

 

Young Interventions believes in a collaborative approach between professionals and families.  Specialists work alongside families in order to assist caregivers in gaining the tools they need to understand and work with their child’s specific abilities.  Our play-based coaching model provides opportunities for families to gain a variety of skills and positive supports, which teach their child within the routines of everyday life.  When there is a collaborative relationship between our specialists and the family, services will be strengthened.
