Infant and Toddlers Program

About the Program

The Virgin Island Infants and Toddlers Program (ITP) is a territory wide, family-centered, multi-disciplinary system of early intervention services for infants and toddlers  from birth through two years of age who have disabilities or developmental delays.  

The program is fully funded by Part C of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and the Department of Health is the Lead Agency. 

The ITP  is charged with implementing a territory-wide, comprehensive system of supports and services for infants and toddlers with developmental delays and their families including;  Service Coordination, Developmental Therapy, Speech/Language Pathology, Physical and Occupational Therapy, Vision Screenings and Audiology.  All services are performed  in the child’s natural environment to the extent possible.  

How to Use the Program and Who Can Use the Program 

Our referral process is simple. Anyone can send a referral to the Infants and Toddlers Program in person, by mail, facsimile or telephone. Relevant family contact and demographic information is necessary to follow-up with the parent/legal guardian of the referred child, and information about the developmental concern or the established diagnosis must be provided. Parent/Legal Guardian consent for evaluation and services must be provided, in writing, to the Infants and Toddlers Program. This program is voluntary. Parents can exit services at anytime. However, children exit (or transition from) the program at three years of age.

Program Costs

No cost to the parent, at this time.
