Early Intervention Physical Therapy NYC

Early Intervention is a comprehensive interagency program that supports infants and children with developmental delays in their efforts to realize their full potential. It reduces the likelihood of delays among at-risk children, assists and empowers families to meet their child’s and their own needs, and entitles children, regardless of race, ethnicity or income, to services through the program.”

Due  to significant  delays  in receiving  pediatric physical therapy  services at  home –   children in these  programs are advised  to  begin physical therapy in  an  outpatient  setting until Early Intervention begins  in the  home.
