About Infant Toddler Program

Idaho's Infant Toddler Program (ITP) coordinates a system of early intervention services to assist Idaho children from birth to 3 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.

Infant Toddler Program services

The Infant Toddler Program links children with services that promote their physical, cognitive, and social-emotional development and supports the needs of their families. In Idaho, services are provided at no cost to families.  Funding comes from private insurance, Medicaid, and  federal and state funds. Our services can include: 

  • Therapeutic
  • Educational
  • Supportive services, such as
    • Family education
    • Speech therapy
    • Occupational therapy
    • Service coordination
    • Counseling
    • Home visits
    • Health services

Children learn best when doing things they enjoy with people they know. We use that principle to help your family support your child's learning during your daily routines.  A lead service provider will work side-by-side with you, share strategies, and coach you to use what you have learned with your child. Together you will find ways to help your child practice skills every day in your home and out in the community that will further his or her development.
