Children who experience homelessness, child abuse and neglect, poverty or other similar situations are at greater risk for developmental delays and disabilities. While Virginia’s early intervention system does not serve at-risk children, many children who receive early intervention services experience these situations which may contribute to their developmental needs. It is important for service coordinators and service providers to be familiar with how these situations can impact early development, learning, and parent-child interactions. This page provides resources related to supporting children and families in challenging situations.
