Children 0 – 2

Children Ages 0 until their 3rd birthday


Early Intervention and Family Services (EIFS), in collaboration with Maine Child Development Services (CDS), supports families and professionals statewide to ensure optimal services for children who are deaf or hard of hearing and their families. We provide comprehensive, unbiased information to support families in making informed decisions that match their values and priorities, and ensure support to help meet their outcomes on their Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP). Early Intervention Specialists (EIS) from MECDHH provide services in the child’s natural environments, including their home and child care settings. EIFS are available to families of deaf or hard of hearing children from birth until their third birthday.
