Early Intervention/Community Based Rehabilitative Services

Available in Lincoln County.

ComServ, Inc. provides these services in Lincoln County to children ages one to three. The services are provided in a licensed setting named A Place To Grow (APTG), a developmental day center. The center is open from 7:30am to 5:30pm Monday through Friday. Early Intervention services are funded through Medicaid.

Early intervention focuses on helping eligible toddlers learn the basic and brand-new skills that typically develop during the first three years of life, such as:

  • physical
    (reaching, rolling, crawling, and walking);

  • cognitive
    (thinking, learning, solving problems);

  • communication
    (talking, listening, understanding);

  • social/emotional
    (playing, feeling secure and happy);

  • self-help
    (eating, dressing).

If an infant or toddler has a disability or a developmental delay in one or more of these developmental areas, that child will likely be eligible for early intervention services through the NC Infant-Toddler Program. These services will be tailored to meet the child’s individual needs and may include:

  • Assistive technology (devices a child might need)

  • Audiology or hearing services

  • Speech and language services

  • Counseling and training for a family

  • Medical services

  • Nursing services

  • Nutrition services

  • Occupational therapy

  • Physical therapy

  • Psychological services

  • Vision services

Services may also be provided to address the needs and priorities of the child’s family. Family-directed services are meant to help family members understand the special needs of their child and how to enhance his or her development.
