ECI's mission is to support families of children birth to thirty-six months of age with developmental needs by providing or helping access services that support family choice and promote independence within the context of the family's natural environment and daily routines.   The program is designed to encourage and assist parents with an infant or a child who appears to be slow in development or who has organic deficiency and/or medical conditions that usually result in developmental delay.  Early intervention is the most effective strategy to enable the child to live as a functional adult and is the most cost-effective time.  This intervention helps avoid more extensive and expensive intervention as the child progresses through the school system and later in life.
