Early Intervention

Early Intervention services are offered to children with special needs from birth through age five and are tailored to the needs of your family. Evidence-based early intervention services are provided at no cost to you and are available year-round. Find out if Summit DD’s early intervention services are right for your child.

Youth and School Age

When your child turns three years old, your local school district begins to administer services for your child. But did you know that Summit DD is still here to offer support for your school-age child or teen? We have Referral and Support Specialists (RSSs) available to help you navigate the questions parents encounter and connect you to community resources to help support your child's needs.
