WHAT IS BIRTH TO 3?
Birth to 3 is Wisconsin's Early Intervention program for infants and toddlers with developmental delays and disabilities and their families.
A federal law called the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) provides a framework for this comprehensive program and coordinates developmental, health, and social services within the community. The Department of Health and Human Services and the Birth to 3 program in Wisconsin has developed Chapter DHS 90 that specify the program requirements.
The Waupaca County Birth to 3 Early Intervention Program follows guidelines developed as a team of Early Intervention Specialists and Therapists. This list of guidelines outlines processes including parent participation, evaluation, the individualized family service plan, and transition out of the program.
