Description

Early Intervention ("EI") is an integrated developmental service, offering both evaluation and therapeutic services to children birth to three years of age for whom there are developmental concerns due to biological, medical or environmental factors. EI services are provided individually in the home, in small integrated groups at our center and in a range of community settings. A variety of parent support, educational and resource referral services are also provided.
The First Early Intervention Program works in collaboration with community resources such as center based day care, family day care, Family Network services, schools services, Head Start, and private therapy services in the area. We provide individualized services to families, attempting to meet their scheduling and therapeutic needs.
Service plans are individualized and flexible in order to meet the changing needs of the child and family.

Autism Consortium Phenotypic & Genetic Factors Study: What are we studying? We hope to learn more about possible genetic causes of ASDs. We want to better understand the behaviors of individuals with ASDs and their family members. We think that it is important to examine behavior and genetics together to learn more about ASDs.
To be eligible participants must: Have an ASD diagnosis; Be at least 24 months old. Parents and some siblings will also be asked to participate in the study. The Goals of this Study Are: To discover new genes involved in ASDs; To establish a comprehensive and efficient assessment battery for improved evaluation of individuals with ASDs; To better understand characteristics of the whole family, such as medical history, to determine if there is a correlation between these family characteristics and any genetic differences so that we may better understand the gene(s) involved in ASDs.
