Early On is a statewide early intervention system that provides a range of family services and supports to help infants and toddlers from birth to 36 months who have developmental delays or established conditions that may lead to delays.
The developmental needs of infants and toddlers are addressed through the collaborative efforts of several agencies in the community. One of the purposes of Early On is to help families trying to find out about services for which they may be eligible.
Eligible infants and toddlers include those birth to 36 months of age who have: an "established condition" (i.e. a diagnosed physical or mental condition which may result in a developmental delay in at least one area of development.
Early On Macomb hosts Family Events & Outings for all the families enrolled in Early On and Macomb Infant Preschool Program (MIPP). Families are invited to participate in community outings.
Early On's "Parent Learning Series" is an adult evening held quarterly to discuss a different topic regarding infants and toddlers.
The MIPP Program serves eligible children ranging in age from a few weeks to three years who need special education services because of a medical difficulty or developmental delay that can affect learning.
