Early Intervention Services


    The Early Intervention Diagnostic Center (EIDC) is a home and center-based program which is family-centered for children birth to three years of age.   The Early Intervention staff will work with families to enhance the child’s development in all developmental areas. 

     Early On Michigan is a system designed to coordinate early intervention and other services for families to have children (birth to three years of age) that have a delay or medical condition.  “Early On” is the collaborative efforts with agencies throughout the city.
