EARLY CHILDHOOD SPOTLIGHT: BUILDING BRIDGES
The Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE), Division of Early Intervention and Special Education Services (DEI/SES) has partnered with The Johns Hopkins University School of Education IDEALS Institute to develop a NEW public service awareness program to promote awareness of early intervention and preschool special education services that are available to families of children in Maryland - from birth to kindergarten - through the DEI/SES Maryland Infants and Toddlers Program and Preschool Special Education Services. Support the effort to reach families.
The MITP provides monitoring and technical assistance to 24 local Infants and Toddlers Programs (LITPs) throughout Maryland. These programs are composed of local departments of education, health, social services, and other public and private providers identified by each jurisdiction. LITPs constitute the service delivery component of the statewide early intervention system. Through the LITPs, services are offered throughout the State and are designed to enhance a child’s potential for growth and development before he or she reaches school age. Services may include: audiology, physical therapy, occupational therapy, transportation, speech-language pathology, family training, special instruction, assistive technology, health services and home visits.
State regulations specify that a child, birth through age two is eligible for early intervention through the MITP in any one of three ways:
