Abilis Birth to Three and Abilis Little Learners

Early intervention makes all the difference in the life of a child with a developmental disability or delay.

Both our Birth to Three and Little Learners 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. Little Learners is a more intensive program that serves children with an autism diagnosis.

The State of Connecticut Child Development Hotline (800.505.7000) is your entry point into the Birth to Three and Little Learners programs. 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 either our Birth to Three or Little Learners 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. In addition to providing therapeutic services for your child, your Abilis team will help you learn how to best support and advocate for your child.

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