Description:

If you suspect your infant has a developmental delay, help is available through New York State’s Early Intervention (EI) Program and approved agencies like St. Mary’s.

Cognition (thinking skills)
Communication (expressive and receptive language skills)
Physical Movement (body, arm and leg skills)
