Intervention Services

Early childhood services provide special education intervention directly to students and/or the parent of students with disabilities from birth through age five.

The Infants and Toddlers Program (ITP) provides developmental, educational, and family support services for children with disabilities from birth through age two. Services are coordinated among the school system, the county health department, and the department of social services. Services are usually home-based and are specified on the Individualized Family Service Plan. For additional information, call 410-222-6911 or access the AACPS Special Education website.

Child Identification

Children are referred for screening by public or private health care providers, or parents. Infants and toddlers are eligible for ITP if there is a documented significant difference between their chronological age and their developmental age, or if they have an inherited or physical condition that will probably result in a future disability. The Child Find Program, which helps locate and identify youngsters with disabilities, can be reached at 410-766-6662.
