Shema Kolainu - Hear Our Voices is an approved provider of early intervention services and under contract with the municipality to deliver early intervention program services.

The Early Intervention Program serves infants and toddlers ages 0-3 diagnosed with autism and developmental disabilities. This program is based on a strong parent-professional partnership.

Individualized services focus on learning readiness; language; play; family participation; daily routines relevant to eating, sleeping, and bathing; and other areas jointly identified by SKHOV professionals and parents. Through EI, children with developmental delays and autism receive education, therapy, service coordination and evaluation in the five boroughs of New York City. Programs are based on the child's Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP) and are designed to involve the family in all aspects of the child's program. Intensive applied behavior analysis is the method of therapy.

The Early Intervention Program (EIP) is a public program for children under the age of three who are either suspected of having or at risk for developmental delays or disabilities. Potentially eligible children must be referred to the NYC Early Intervention Program, to receive EIP services.

In NYC, call 3-1-1 to refer a child to Early Intervention or the Totline telephone number at: (800) 577-2229 FREE.

Our Early Intervention Program is funded and regulated by New York State Department of Health and New York City by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. All EIP services are provided at no cost to parents. Health insurance may be used for approved services. A child's eligibility for the program can be determined only by state-approved evaluators under contract, and all services must be authorized by the county.

If a child is found eligible for the early intervention program, all needed early intervention services are identified in collaboration with the parent and must be authorized by the municipality. The municipality will arrange for service providers, considering the individual needs of the child and family, to deliver services authorized by the municipality.

When early intervention services are delivered in child care settings or community locations that require a fee, the parent is responsible for paying any associated costs with such access to child care or community locations.
