WHAT IS EARLY INTERVENTION?

Kitsap County contracts with Holly Ridge Center for Early Intervention Services.  Early Intervention is a system of comprehensive services a family may receive for their infant or toddler with developmental delays or disabilities. It is designed to meet the individual needs of each child and family and enhance a child’s development in various settings, including in their home, childcare, preschool, and in their community.

Meet graduates juliette and leo…

“What was so nice about Holly Ridge (Center) is they saw what we needed and they arranged for the therapist to come to our house. Through therapy through Holly Ridge (Center) and through her doctors at the Hospital, she’s living a normal life. It’s just amazing to see that.”

–  Juliette’s Dad

Holly Ridge (Center) equipped us with practical, useful tools we needed to help Leo communicate and feel like we understood him. His tantrums became rarer, and he became a much happier toddler.”

–  Leo’s Mom, Kendall

“Jack’s level of functioning as he enters adulthood is way beyond what we thought was possible.” “…it is about recognizing our abilities, just as we focus and recognize Jack’s abilities. It is what we CAN do!” – Lori, Jack’s Mom

Babies Can’t Wait!

85% of the human brain develops in the first three years of life. Early Intervention Services optimize our brain’s incredible flexibility and rapid development during the Birth to Three window. The success of Early Intervention Services results in as many as one third of children no longer showing a significant developmental delay that would qualify them for special education services in their school districts.
