Richmond Behavioral Health Authority
Who We Are
Richmond Behavioral Health Authority's (RBHA) Early Intervention (EI) provides supports and services to infants and toddlers from birth through age two who are not developing as expected or who have a medical condition that can delay normal development. The program focuses on helping this population to be active and successful participants during the early childhood years and in the future in a variety of settings – in their homes with their families, in child care, preschool or school programs, and in the community. The program enables families to provide care for their child and have the resources they need to participate in their own desired family and community activities. EI supports and services focus on increasing the child's participation in family and community activities that are important to the family, and focus on helping parents and other caregivers know how to find ways to help their child learn during everyday activities.
EI services are designed to meet the needs of infants and toddlers and the needs of their families, as these needs relate to enhancing the child’s development. The case manager in the Developmental Disabilities division conducts a developmental screening, completes an Individual Family Service Plan and coordinates services and helps families by providing resources to meet basic family needs.
