Early Intervention (EI) Services


SJ & Associates provides Early Intervention (EI) services for children with developmental delays in Orange, Rockland, Ulster, and Dutchess Counties. We evaluate and treat children who have met the New York State guidelines for Early Intervention eligibility.


EI eligibility is based upon evaluation results in accordance with the NYS Department of Health regulations. All Early Intervention services are provided at no cost to parents. Your health insurance or Medicaid may be accessed for reimbursement of services provided to eligible children.



Our team of New York State licensed and certified professionals conduct evaluations and make individualized recommendations for appropriate treatment.


EI evaluations are conducted in the child's natural environment or at another appropriate location such as a daycare or another community setting.


We are able to conduct a variety of evaluations to best assess your child's needs:

  • Multidisciplinary and Supplemental Evaluations

  • Bilingual (Spanish) Evaluations

  • Speech and Language

  • Oral Motor and Feeding
