Jump Start Early Intervention
Once your child is referred to Berkeley Citizens by BabyNet, an Early Interventionist will work with you and your infant or toddler to tailor activities designed to stimulate overall physical and mental development. These services are provided in the home, in day care centers and other locations where a child spends the majority of his or her day. Staff work closely with the Berkeley County Public Schools and private day care centers to identify appropriate services for children with special needs.
Early Intervention staff will consult with you to develop a plan that covers all aspects of your child’s life, including medical status, financial needs, family strengths and other agency services. Your Early Interventionist will answer any questions about your child’s special needs and services to which he or she may be entitled.
The Respite program provides a period of rest and relief for families of individuals who receive services through Berkeley Citizens. Respite is provided in the home of the individual, the home of a chosen caregiver or an agreed upon location. For more information, please contact your Case Manager.
Every child deserves the opportunity to enjoy summer fun!
