The Arc Alliance Children’s Services provides early intervention and support services to children between the ages of birth and three years with developmental delays.  Early Intervention services IMG_2257are designed to allow your child the opportunity to actively participate in family and community life.

The Arc Alliance Children’s Services teachers and therapists work on the outcomes identified by you for your child and Early Intervention activities occur in the IMG_0007places you choose to meet those outcomes, at home, in a child care setting or in the community.  It is not unusual to see Early Intervention Services taking place in the grocery store, the mall, at the doctor’s office,the library and on the playground.

Through the years we have found that families serve as an effective resource for each other.  Families gather for support, to receive information or to have fun.  We offer a variety of inclusive group activities throughout the year that make it easy and convenient for families to get together.

The Arc Alliance Children’s Services looks forward to serving you and your family!
