EligibilityEligibility for this program is determined by a core evaluation, which assesses the five developmental domains (cognitive, social-emotional, physical, communication and adaptive.) A child must have a 33% delay in one domain or a 25% delay in two or more domains. Some children are automatically deemed eligible for the program due to a diagnosed condition such as Down's Syndrome, cerebral palsy, etc. If the child does not have a diagnosed condition and the parent suspects that he-she may have a delay, the parent may request an evaluation.
