Home Visits

Home visits are offered to families in the family’s home or community and via remote learning technology using a coaching model, empowering families to support their child’s development throughout all aspects of their day-to-day life. The Early Intervention Specialist (EIS) serves as the family’s Primary Services Provider (PSP), or joins as a joint visitor or consultant to the PSP.
