Many early intervention (EI) programs, CFC offices and providers around our state may have suspended in-person visits, or families may have limited visits because of their own health concerns. However, infants, toddlers and their families can keep working on EI outcomes. The EI Clearinghouse has put together this set of selected tip sheets with ideas about how infants and toddlers can keep learning during play and daily routines. We hope these resources help you start to think about everyday moments in the kitchen, when doing the laundry, or playing on the couch and turn them into opportunities for Everyday Early Intervention with your family. In addition, please contact us to request books and DVDs for you and your child to use at home.
