Young Child Expo & Conference

 

May 2-5, 2017 at The Wyndham New Yorker Hotel in midtown Manhattan

Our goal for the Young Child Expo & Conference is simple – to provide useful information to professionals and parents in order to help all young children learn, grow and reach their full potential. Our conference in NYC brings over 1500 people together and our conference in Spokane brings over 500 people together across all kinds of programs, disciplines, and interest areas from speech pathologists to parents, to those working in children’s museums, day care centers, preschools, and those working with children who have autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or other special needs. In one unique event, this conference integrates learning about typically developing children as well as those with special needs, including autism. Fordham University and Los Niños Services collaborate on the NYC conference, while Gonzaga University and Los Niños Services collaborate on the Spokane conference.

The Early Intervention Program (EIP) is a public program funded by New York State and county governments for children under the age of three who are either suspected of having or at risk for developmental delays or disabilities. Potentially eligible children must be referred to the county program to receive EIP services:

New York City Westchester County
311 914-813-5094

Someone else can help you make the referral to the Early Intervention Program if you wish. If your child is found to be eligible for services by someone approved to perform this evaluation, you, county staff, and other team members will make a plan to help your child – and your family.

Early intervention services in your plan and authorized by the county are provided at no cost to you. The county will arrange for the services to be provided and will choose the provider based on the needs of your child and family. Your child’s health insurance may be used to cover some of the costs. All other costs for EIP services are paid for by your county and New York State.

Early intervention services are provided where it’s best for the child – in places such as your home, day care, or other community settings. The EIP covers the cost of early intervention services only. The EIP does not pay for day care or other fees charged by community settings.

Los Niños Services is approved by New York State and has contracts with New York City and Westchester County to provide early intervention services.
