Early Start Program – Individuals with Disabilities Education Act

Early Start is California’s IDEA Early Intervention Program for Infants and Toddlers (IDEA Part C Program).  Teams of service coordinators, healthcare providers, early intervention specialists, therapists, and parent resource specialists evaluate and assess infants or toddlers and provide appropriate early intervention and family support services for young children from birth to three years of age.

Families may contact their local school district or regional center regarding early intervention services.
