Early On Services in Montcalm County aims to provide support to children from birth to age three who have developmental delays or disabilities or who are at risk of experiencing developmental difficulties. This program focuses on identifying and addressing potential challenges early on to promote the child’s healthy development and overall well-being.

Through the Montcalm Area Intermediate School District Early On services are provided through collaborative efforts involving various agencies, organizations, and educational institutions. These programs may involve assessments, screenings, and evaluations to identify any developmental concerns in infants and toddlers. If delays or disabilities are detected, a team of professionals, including educators, therapists, and medical specialists, work together to design and implement an individualized plan for each child.

The specific services offered by Early On programs can vary but often include early childhood education, speech therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy, and social-emotional support. These services may be delivered in various settings, including child care centers, homes, clinics, or specialized early intervention centers.

The goal of early intervention programs is to provide children with the support they need during critical developmental stages, which can have a significant impact on their long-term outcomes. Additionally, these programs often involve family support and involvement, recognizing the important role that parents and caregivers play in a child’s development.
