Idaho's Infant Toddler Program (ITP) coordinates a system of early intervention services
to assist Idaho children birth to three years of age who have a developmental delay or who have conditions (such as prematurity, Down Syndrome, hearing loss) that may result in a developmental delay.
The ITP links children with services that promote their physical, mental and emotional development and supports the needs of their families. These can include therapeutic, educational, and supportive services, such as:
- Family education
- Speech therapy
- Occupational therapy
- Service coordination
- Family training
- Home visits
- Health services
Children referred to the Infant Toddler Program are assessed to see if they meet program eligibility. If eligible, an Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP) is written that outlines services for the child and their family. This plan is reviewed every six months. At three years of age, ITP assists with the child's transition to a developmental preschool program or other community services.
