Eligibility for services is determined through a multi-disciplinary evaluation consisting of standardized testing.

The Early Intervention Program for children birth to age three is regulated by the NYS Department of Health Bureau of Early Intervention. Parents may request an evaluation by contacting their county Early Intervention Program. Once eligibility is determined, the county is responsible for finding providers to serve the child and their family.

The Preschool Program is regulated by the NYS Education Department. Each school district is responsible for helping parents choose a multi-disciplinary evaluation team. If a child is determined to be eligible for services, the school district will find an agency or independent providers to serve the child.
