what is cfc?

At CFC, we coordinate evaluations and assessments of children from birth to 36 months to determine whether a child exhibits qualifying delays in one or more of the following areas of development: physical, cognitive, communication, social or emotional , and adaptive.

Families with children who are determined eligible for Early Intervention services receive an Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP). The IFSP is developed with the family. The IFSP drives the services and supports available to the family.

Early Intervention

Early intervention (EI) is a system of services that helps children from birth to three years old with developmental delays or disabilities. EI focuses on helping eligible infants and toddlers learn the key skills that typically develop during the first three years of life.
