Many parents today face raising children amidst a whole host of challenges, like economic downturn, limited to no family assistance, and expanded expectations at work without commensurate increases in pay and/or childcare to name a few. These challenges may be compounded where a family is struggling with questions on how to assess or provide assistance for a baby or young child who may have an intellectual or developmental disability.

The Department of Assistive and Rehabilitative Services has an early childhood intervention program devoted to assisting families with these kind of concerns.
