Eligibility & Services

Info
If your child qualifies for services, you and the Up to 3 team will write an Individualized Family Services Plan (IFSP) containing goals to be addressed over the next six months. Up to 3 works with you to identify ways to blend developmental strategies into your daily routines to reach those goals, with most services provided in your home. Up to 3 provides virtual parent classes using zoom and in-person or virtual (zoom) visits in the child’s home and/or community.

Eligibility

Eligibility for Up to 3 is determined by a team of specialists with knowledge about early childhood development and medical diagnoses that may result in a developmental disability.

The team will complete a Battelle Developmental Inventory (BDI) evaluation, a health, vision, and hearing screening, and other target assessments by specialists based on your concerns about your child’s development.

To be eligible your child must have a medical diagnosis on the State’s approve list, or have a moderate delay in one or more developmental areas on the BDI, or in the opinion of your assessment team have developmental delays that meet the State’s eligibility criteria.   If your child’s assessment does not have a developmental delay you will receive information to track your child’s development.

Evaluation for eligibility is at no cost.
