Early Supports & Services

Rise…for baby and family has been providing Early Supports and Services for infants and toddlers in the Monadnock region since 1981. The program has grown significantly and now serves approximately 250 infants and toddlers and their families per year.

A child may be eligible due to a diagnosed condition, a delay in development or due to high risk factors. Following a developmental evaluation, an Individual Family Support Plan is written to address the unique needs of the child as well as the family’s concerns and priorities. Services are individualized and may happen in the child’s home and/or in their child care setting. Wherever the child is seen, supports and services are provided in concert with the family. Home visitors are therapists, educators and social workers, all of whom work closely with parents to share their strategies so that parents can use those strategies throughout the day and week to encourage positive changes in their child’s development.

The success of this program can be measured by the progress made by the enrolled children and by the satisfaction of the families we serve. Our success has been certified by state conducted compliance reviews and family surveys. We continue to meet 100% compliance on all of the state mandates. In addition, parents confirmed their satisfaction with services in the annual survey. We are proud of our efforts on behalf of children and families and we welcome you to read what our families say.

We continue to work to reach out to the community to develop an understanding of the developmental needs of young children, to encourage early referrals where concerns exist, and to provide the highest quality of services. In short we are “Helping parents help their babies, one family at a time.”
