Children learn and develop faster during the first three years of life than at any other time. Early intervention during these years helps many children overcome developmental delays. Everyday routines and experiences provide the best opportunities for a child to learn and succeed.
Birth-to-Three is a provider of early intervention services for children from birth to three years of age. Referrals are sent to us through the Child Development Infoline (2-1-1) or call directly to 1-800-505-7000. When call you may request Harc as your provider.
Regardless of their town of residence, each of our Birth-to-Three families has their choice of an area provider agency. Our qualified professionals provide support and services in the child’s natural environment, such as the home, daycare, or the community. The child’s learning skills are reinforced through a coaching style of interaction with the family.
The State of Connecticut Office of Early Childhood funds the Birth-to-Three program.
- Intake and Evaluation: Once a referral comes to Harc’s Birth-to-Three program, the family is contacted to schedule an eligibility evaluation. The family is also provided with key information to help move through the process smoothly.
