  • Be under the age of 36 months, and
  • Have a diagnosed medical condition the will result in a developmental delay, or
  • Show significant delays in development such as talking or walking.
  • If you are concerned about a child’s development, please contact the Children 1st entry line at 770-514-2759, Monday through Friday (8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.).

Early Intervention services may include developmental screenings to determine the child’s delay, evaluations to determine eligibility and assessments to determine the scope of services needed. To learn more about early intervention services provided by the BCW program,
