Addressing Developmental Delays

More than 35,000 children in Austin are living with a special healthcare need that impacts their ability to achieve developmental milestones appropriately. Addressing these needs within the first three-years can make a lifelong impact. Any Baby Can offers Early Childhood Intervention (ECI) services to help children with developmental or physical challenges reach their full potential.

Early Childhood Intervention

ECI client familyAny Baby Can is a proud provider of the Early Childhood Intervention (ECI) program for select service areas in Travis, Hays, Llano and Blanco Counties. The ECI model was built on the understanding that the most effective time to improve a child’s ability to grow and learn is before the age of three.

Through in-home services such as occupational, physical and speech therapy; specialized skills training; resource navigation and case management, our team uses a coaching model to build the child’s skills and increase the parents’ knowledge and ability to support their child.

ECI Provides:

  • Occupational, physical and speech therapy

  • Specialized skills training, involving parents working together with their child to improve outcomes

  • Home-based case management and resource navigation including insurance options, medical systems, school and community resources to create an effective advocacy team

Eligibility Criteria:

We serve families with children from birth to 36 months with a developmental delay, medically diagnosed condition or auditory or visual impairment. To be eligible, your child must meet one of the following criteria:

  • Medically Diagnosed Condition

  • Auditory or Visual Impairment

  • Developmental Delay

Search for the ECI program in your area by typing your home zip code into the Health and Human Services search tool.

Our team can help you assess if your child could benefit from and qualify for ECI services.
