Birth to Three Program

The Birth to Three Program is an early intervention program for infants and toddlers with developmental delays and disabilities. It is a comprehensive, community-based, statewide system that promotes a family-centered approach to early intervention. It emphasizes family strengths and incorporates informal and community resources. The system ensures cooperative planning between the state of Wisconsin and counties, promotes uniformity of interventions available across the state, and involves the education, health and social service systems.

The program can assess the child's developmental ability to:
  • Learn and Play
  • Move, See, and Hear
  • Communicate
  • Develop Relationships
  • Perform Basic Self-Care
  • Express and Regulate Emotions
