If your child is diagnosed with developmental delays or disability, you may feel overwhelmed and unsure of what to do next. But don’t worry-Nevada Early Intervention Services (NEIS) is here to help.

NEIS is a statewide program that provides early intervention services to infants and toddlers with developmental delays or disabilities and their families. They offer various services, including developmental assessments, individualized family plans, therapy services, and more. They also provide information and resources to families about their child’s development and how to best support their child’s needs.

NEIS’s mission is to ensure that all infants and toddlers with developmental delays or disabilities in Nevada receive the services and support they need to reach their full potential. They are committed to identifying children with developmental delay, providing families with information and resources, and facilitating the delivery of high-quality early intervention services.

Their Guiding principle is that all children have a unique and inherent talent. They also firmly believe that families are the child’s first and best teachers. As such, they work to empower families and involve them in all aspects of their child’s early intervention.

Each family that comes to NEIS is unique, and so is the NEIS services. They work closely with each family to develop an individualized service plan that meets their child’s specific needs. They also offer ongoing support and guidance to families as they navigate their child’s early intervention journey. The values, priorities, and diversity of each family are also respected.

Early intervention services can make a profound difference in a child’s life with a developmental delay or disability, especially if those services are started as early as the first three years of life. A child’s brain develops rapidly during those early years, and intervention services can help improve developmental and educational gains. Moreover, early intervention can lessen the cost of later, more intensive services such as special education that might be necessary without intervention. And family members report that they feel less isolated, stressed, and frustrated because they started intervening early.

Early intervention is also linked to more productivity and independence as an adult. So if you think your child might benefit from early intervention services, don’t hesitate to reach out to NEIS. The interventions provided come at no fee and include therapies, Assistive technology devices/services, Audiology (hearing) services, Family training, counseling and a home visit, Health services, Nutrition counseling, Social work services, Special instruction, and many more.

These services are available and offered based on the Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP) created for each family on board. The IFSP is a plan that includes information about your child’s present levels of development, your family’s strengths and needs, and the services provided to your child and family to help meet their goals.
