About the Program

The US Virgin Islands Infants and Toddlers Early Intervention Program is a territorywide, comprehensive, coordinated, multidisciplinary, interagency system providing early intervention services for infants and toddlers with disabilities and their families in St. Thomas/St. John, Water Island, and St. Croix. Our purpose is to enhance the capacity of families to meet the special needs of their children. This program supplements the Maternal Child Health Program services.

Service Coordination, Special Instruction (Developmental Therapy), Vision Services, Speech & Language Therapy, Family Training, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Social Work services, and Assistive Technology

How to Use the Program and Who Can Use the Program 

Our referral process is simple. Anyone can send a referral to the Infants and Toddlers Program in person, by mail, facsimile or telephone. Relevant family contact and demographic information is necessary to follow-up with the parent/legal guardian of the referred child, and information about the developmental concern or the established diagnosis must be provided. Parent/Legal Guardian consent for evaluation and services must be provided, in writing, to the Infants and Toddlers Program. This program is voluntary. Parents can exit services at anytime. However, children exit (or transition from) the program at three years of age.
