Early Intervention/Community Based Rehabilitative Services
Available in Lincoln County.
ComServ, Inc. provides these services in Lincoln County to children ages one to three. The services are provided in a licensed setting named A Place To Grow (APTG), a developmental day center. The center is open from 7:30am to 5:30pm Monday through Friday. Early Intervention services are funded through Medicaid.
Early intervention focuses on helping eligible toddlers learn the basic and brand-new skills that typically develop during the first three years of life, such as:
- physical (reaching, rolling, crawling, and walking);
- cognitive (thinking, learning, solving problems);
- communication (talking, listening, understanding);
- social/emotional (playing, feeling secure and happy); and
- self-help (eating, dressing).
If an infant or toddler has a disability or a developmental delay in one or more of these developmental areas, that child will likely be eligible for early intervention services through the NC Infant-Toddler Program ( www.beearly.nc.gov). These services will be tailored to meet the child’s individual needs and may include:
- Assistive technology (devices a child might need)
- Audiology or hearing services
- Speech and language services
- Counseling and training for a family
- Medical services
- Nursing services
- Nutrition services
- Occupational therapy
- Physical therapy
- Psychological services
- Vision services
Services may also be provided to address the needs and priorities of the child’s family. Family-directed services are meant to help family members understand the special needs of their child and how to enhance his or her development.
