Early Start

Families whose infants or toddlers have a developmental delay or disability or an established risk condition with a high probability of resulting in a delay may be eligible to receive an "Early Start" in California. Teams of service coordinators, healthcare providers, early intervention specialists, therapists, and parent resource specialists evaluate and assess infants or toddlers and provide appropriate early intervention and family support services for young children from birth to three years of age.
For more information, view the Early Start page on the State of California Department of Developmental Services website. Please contact Cindy Kozlowski, Program Specialist at Early Start, at (661) 294-5332.
