Facility Based Service

Lighthouse International's Early Intervention Program is designed to identify a developmental delay or vision problem as early as possible, giving babies and toddlers the best possible chance of reaching the same developmental milestones as their peers.

Our Early Intervention Program is offered in conjunction with The Ethel and Samuel J. LeFrak School, our Universal Pre-Kindergarten program where children who are visually impaired learn alongside their sighted peers.

Reaching Families

Lighthouse International's Early Intervention Program (EIP) is a public program for children under the age of three who are either suspected of having, or are at risk for, developmental delays or disabilities. Potentially eligible children must be referred to EIP by a professional or parent in their county of residence. Eligibility can be determined only by state-approved evaluators under contract. EIP is funded by New York State and country governments; all services are provided at no cost to parents and health insurance may be used for approved services.

Call the New York State Department of Health at (800) 522-5006 to be authorized to receive services for Lighthouse International's Early Intervention Program.
