    Developmental Milestones

    Are you concerned?  Because all babies are different, they rarely do the same thing at exactly the same age.  As a result, it's not unusual for families to have questions or concerns about their child's development.  You may wonder; Why isn't my son sitting up?  Why isn't my daughter crawling?  Why doesn't my son talk like other children his age?

    You can read the child find brochure "Babies Have A Lot To Learn" for some general guidelines or developmental milestones.  It's important to keep in mind that all children develop differently and at their own pace.

    Where to Begin?

    The Nevada Early Intervention Services (NEIS) System provides services to children birth until three with developmental delay or disabilities, and their families.  If you are concerned about your child's development, the first step is to have your child referred for evaluation, which looks at his or her basic skills.  This evaluation is free of charge.  You can refer your child directly or you can have your child's physician or another professional make the referral for you.  You will be assigned a service coordinator who will help you through the process.  Below are the various Early Intervention Program's contact information.

    Children 3 years +

    If you have concerns or would like an evaluation for children 3 years of age and up, contact your local school district for information.

    What are my rights and why are they important?

    Rights protect your family and child. All families enrolled in early intervention programs in Nevada have the same rights. Your rights within the early intervention process begin as soon as you are referred to a program and continue as long as you and your child participate in the early intervention program. The IDEA Part C law governs early intervention services and gives families’ rights. You can find more information about these Part C laws at: http://idea.ed.gov/

      Central Resource Directory - Project ASSIST and Early Childhood Special Education Library

      One of the resources is Project ASSIST, a Central Resource Directory for information about organizations, programs or agencies that may provide services and supports for children and young adults up to 21 years with disabilities, and their families.

      Another resource available to families, professionals, educators, and staff working with young children with disabilities and their families is the Early Childhood Special Education Resource Library in the IDEA Part C office.  It contains hundreds of books, DVDs, and materials regarding children, families, disabilities, early intervention, childhood education, and more.  This library is available for use statewide.  Contact:  ProjectAssist@dhhs.nv.gov or (800) 522-0066.
