Early Intervention

The State's Birth to Three System is funded by a combination of federal and state dollars, private insurance and family fees (based on gross income). Services provided by TheraCare include but are not limited to evaluation and assessment, service coordination and all other required services under Part C of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act such as family training and home visits by a variety of therapists and educators, as well as applying various methodologies to meet the needs of our autism population.

Our skilled professionals work in partnership with each family, and their primary health care providers, to create an environment for enhancing their ability to meet their child's individual needs.

TheraCare employs professionals with expertise in various teaching methods for children with developmental disabilities and children with Autism Spectrum Disorders such as Applied Behavior Analysis/including Verbal behavior (ABA), the use of Discrete Trial Teaching (DTT) methods, Relationship-based approach (DIR) or a combination of one or more methods. The program is supervised by Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA).

TheraCare's teachers and clinicians receive intensive and ongoing training by our full-time supervisory staff and full-time administrators support not only our program but also the families we serve. All children are seen in their natural environment.

To refer your child to Connecticut's Birth to Three Program, call Connecticut's Child Development Infoline at (800) 505-7000.

 Child Development Infoline: 800-505-7000


Birth to Three helps children with disabilities or delays in their development who are under the age of three and meet eligibility criteria by working closely with families to provide the kinds of services and supports that best meet the child’s and family’s needs and priorities.

All referrals are received by the Child Development Infoline (1-800-505-7000). The child development experts at CDI will ask questions to determine the specific nature of the developmental concerns and offer a free developmental evaluation by a Birth to Three program if the concerns are significant. Anyone can make the referral, but only the parent can give consent for Birth to Three to evaluate.
