WHAT IS EDIS?

EDIS is a program that provides assistance to children age birth to 36 months who have or may be at risk for a developmental delay. By providing resources and support to these children and their families during these critical years, EDIS helps children get off to a great start.

IS YOUR CHILD READY TO LEARN?    DON'T GUESS.   KNOW FOR SURE!

Every child develops in his own style and at his own pace. In the first three years of life, most children develop new skills in a predictable order - they crawl before they walk (motor), and they point before they use words to tell you what they want (language); they interact with toys before learning to play with others (social), cling to you for safety before attempting independence (emotional), and they imitate what you do before venturing out into self-discovery (intellectual).

WHO IS ELIGIBLE?

Children with medical conditions likely to cause disability or developmental delay, or children with delays in the following areas may be eligible:

  • Physical Development: Crawling, walking, seeing, hearing, premature babies.
  • Cognitive Development: Learning skills, play skills, or problem solving.
  • Social & Emotional Development: Getting along with others, showing feelings.
  • Adaptive Development: Feeding, dressing, toilet training.
  • Communication: Listening, talking, expressing self & ideas.
