Abilis Birth to Three Services

For a child with a developmental disability or delay, early intervention makes all the difference.

Our Birth to Three early intervention programs help families address the diverse developmental and health-related needs of their infants and toddlers. Abilis pairs children and families with appropriate teachers and therapists to deliver an individualized therapy program based on identified goals and objectives.

In the State of Connecticut, Abilis is one of 11 Birth to Three service providers who have an autism designation, allowing us to provide diagnostic and intensive services to children with an autism diagnosis. Our teachers and therapists coach and provide support to families in natural learning environments, such as the home or day care.

The State of Connecticut Child Development Hotline (800.505.7000) is your entry point into the Birth to Three program. If you specifically request Abilis, you will be directed to us and our team. Abilis will then arrange for a visit with you and your child. During the visit, Abilis will discuss your concerns and evaluate your child to determine program eligibility. If your child qualifies for our Birth to Three program, Abilis will work with you to create an individualized service plan to address your child’s cognitive, communication, physical, sensory, and behavioral needs. Abilis will identify the right teachers and therapists to deliver the plan both in your home and in community settings that are important to you.

If your child does not qualify for state-funded services, Abilis offers private therapy services and will help guide you to the best educational and therapeutic resources available to meet your child’s needs.
