Birth Through Five

The Carroll County Public Schools' (CCPS) Birth through Five program offers early intervention services to eligible children, 0-5 years of age, and their families at no cost. Your participation is voluntary.  To qualify to receive services under the Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP), the child must be under three and meet one of the following criteria:

       • demonstrate a 25% delay in at least one developmental area
       • demonstrate atypical development
       • have a diagnosed condition that places him/her at risk of developmental delays

Please note, since we are a home-based service, we ask that you cancel your visit if your child or any family member is sick, so that we do not carry infections into the homes of our other students.  Our staff will offer you the same courtesy.
