Birth to Three
Early intervention program for eligible infants and toddlers with significant developmental delays or disabilities. This could include those children diagnosed with cognitive delays, physical impairments, sensory problems, speech and language delays or emotional disturbances. Children who qualify could receive speech and language therapy, assistive technology, audiology, occupational therapy or physical therapy. Needs would be addressed through an Individual Family Service Plan.

Evaluation and case management services are provided at no cost. Families could have a cost share copayment for some services based on family size and household income. Marinette County Birth to Three Program has been successfully serving children and families.

Guiding Birth to Three Principles
  • Children’s optimal development depends on their being viewed first as children and second as children with a problem or disability.
  • Children’s greatest resource is their family. Children are best served within the context of family.
  • Parents are partners in any activity that serves their children.
  • Just as children are best supported within the context of family, the family is best supported within the context of the community.
  • Professionals are most effective when they can work as a team member with parents and others.
  • Collaboration is the best way to provide comprehensive services.
  • Early intervention enhances the development of children.
