Early Intervention Services
New River Valley Community Services
Who We Are
At New River Valley Community Services (NRVCS), the Early Intervention program supports families of infants and toddlers with developmental delays and disabilities. Early Intervention professionals help families build on the things they do every day to support their child’s learning and development in order to reach their goals for their child.
A child is eligible who has a diagnosed condition that will very likely cause a developmental delay. These conditions include:
- Genetic disorders, such as Down syndrome,
- Cleft lip or palate,
- NICU stay of greater than or equal to 28 days,
- Autism Spectrum Disorder;
- Vision or hearing loss.
Locally, these services are provided through the Infant and Toddler Connection of the New River Valley (ITC-NRV). Radford University serves as the local lead agency for ITC-NRV and employs the system manager who handles all initial referrals. Children with Medicaid are referred to NRVCS, so a service coordinator can make initial home visits, assemble the assessment team and facilitate development of the initial Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP).
