Infants and Toddlers

at Queen Anne's County Public Schools

The first three years of a child’s life are the most critical time for learning.

Children develop at different rates, and their personalities and temperaments differ from one to another. Sometimes a parent has a hunch that there is something going on that is not quite typical of children at this age. If you’re not sure, please call us. We’re ready to help.

About Early Intervention

Early Intervention Services help families with infants and toddlers who have delays in their development, or who are at risk for delays, grow to their full potential. A team of professionals will work with you to understand your concerns, determine if your child does need special help, and create a plan to support you in providing that help for your child.

There is no cost to families. Eligibility is based on a child’s need rather than family circumstances. All information is kept confidential.


Children from birth to age 3 are eligible for Early Intervention if they:                                      

  • May be slower in doing things other children their age are doing
  • Have a diagnosis that puts them at risk for delays
  • May have something about their development that is “just not right”
  • May have something about their behavior that causes concerns

Make a Referral

Parents, teachers, physicians, community agencies, daycare/nursery schools, other health specialists, and private schools may refer children.
