The Department of Health was appointed by the Governor as lead agency responsible for the development and implementation of a state early intervention system for infants and toddlers, birth to age 3, who have disabilities or developmental delays and their families.
 
Program Description

The NJ Early Intervention System provides services for infants and toddlers, age birth to three years of age, with developmental delays and disabilities, and their families.

Services include assistive technology services/devices; audiology services; developmental intervention; family training, counseling and home visits; health services; nursing services; nutrition services; occupational therapy; psychological services; social work services; speech and language therapy; vision services; and other early intervention services.

 
Fees
Family cost share is a progressive monthly fee based on family size and income along the federal poverty guidelines.
If a family's income is below 300% of the federal poverty level guidelines, they will not have cost share.
Families with an annual income at or above 300% of the federal poverty level guidelines are required to share in the costs of early intervention services provided.
