Washington Early Support for Infants and Toddlers (ESIT) – Department of Early Learning
Bette Hyde, Director
Early intervention services during the first years can make a big difference in a child’s life. Early Support for Infants and Toddlers provides services to children birth to 3 who have disabilities and/or developmental delays. Eligible infants and toddlers and their families are entitled to individualized, quality early intervention services in accordance with the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), Part C. We at the Department of Early Learning (DEL) strive to help create safe, healthy, nurturing learning experiences for all Washington children. Our work focuses on the earliest years in children’s homes, child care, school programs and communities. We offer information and resources for children's first and most important teachers—parents—as well as others who care for and teach young children. We coordinate early intervention services for children birth to age 3 who have disabilities and/or developmental delays through the Early Support for Infants and Toddlers (ESIT) program . These services may include specialized instruction, speech therapy, occupational therapy, or physical therapy that can help young children. The program also supports parents as the most critical influence on their child’s early learning and development.
