A Family Support Coordinator will contact the family to set up a home visit to complete screening/intake process.

A screening is a quick look at how your child is developing and learning.  The screening is conducted by trained staff to:

  • Find out what areas of development are on track or behind what would be expected for your child’s age.
  • Gather information to assist in determining eligibility for services.
  • Assist in developing the plan that will guide services if eligible.
