Summit’s Early Childhood Outreach Division therapeutic services to children birth to five years old with developmental delays or disorders. Highly trained specialists in areas such as speech pathology, special education, occupational and physical therapy work together with parents to help each child achieve his or her full potential. We provide services in the setting most natural and appropriate for each child including the child’s home or daycare center.
For infants and toddlers who may be at risk or have confirmed developmental delays, the earliest years are the most critical. Early identification of developmental delays significantly improves a child’s chances to achieve their full individual potential. Summit professionals work directly with children and families to assist them in addressing the specific needs of their children. Summit provides a broad range of early intervention services for young children from birth to three years of age through the New York State Early Intervention Program at no direct cost to families. For preschool children, ages 3 – 5, services are funded by your local school district and county – also at no direct cost. Regardless of age, our staff will work with your child in your home, child care center, nursery school, or other familiar community location.

- Speech Pathology
