is a federally mandated program provided by every county in Wisconsin. The Birth to 3 program serves families who have children ages birth to 3 years old with disabilities or developmental delays. Services are provided to the child in the family's home or other natural environments.
The Birth to 3 program has three eligibility categories: diagnosed conditions; 25% delay in one developmental area; or atypical development. Eligibility determination is made by two team members along with the child's caregiver. Team members could include: Special Education Teacher, Occupational Therapist, Physical Therapist, Speech Therapist or Public Health Nurse.
Once a child is found eligible, the team creates an Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP) which includes goals and a service plan to address the needs of the child.
