Our early intervention services incorporate these evidence-based practices:

  • A child's relationship with primary caregivers organizes all his or her early development
  • Children are active participants in their own development, based on their drive to explore and master their environment
  • Children learn through repeated, meaningful interactions with their environments
  • Increased parent responsiveness translates to higher levels of developmental functioning for children
  • Services are dictated by functional outcomes chosen by families
  • Building the capacity of families through parent-mediated intervention yields the best child outcomes for infants and toddlers

Infant-Toddler Services early intervention team of professionals rely on the following components to guide their services to eligible infants and toddlers and their families:

  • Identifying family activity settings, natural learning environments and children's learning opportunities with a focus on the child's participation in these natural settings
  • Identifying family priorities
  • Coaching families to increase their capacity to promote their child's learning and development
  • Emphasizing functional outcomes and quality of life for children and families
  • Ongoing collaboration with team members


Infant-Toddler Services Network of Riley County implements evidence-based practices in the delivery of early intervention services to infants and toddlers and their families. What does the research say? Research indicates that parent responsiveness to and support of child behavior in the context of everyday activity settings is a potent strategy for supporting and strengthening child competence expression and for promoting child acquisition of new abilities. An integral part of this approach supports research demonstrating that cognitive, social, emotional, motor and language development are interconnected.
