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.
