Eligibility for the Arizona Early Intervention Program is determined either through a multidisciplinary evaluation or an established condition. Children who have an established condition that is known to be associated with developmental delays may automatically be eligible for the program. Children who demonstrate a significant delay in one of the five major areas of development (cognitive, language, motor, social, emotional, and self-help) may also be eligible.
To start the process, please visit the Arizona Early Intervention Program website to make a referral. Once the referral is received, it will be assigned to an AzEIP contractor. A developmental screening will be completed and if the risk for a significant developmental delay is indicated an evaluation will be conducted. If your child is not eligible for the Arizona Early Intervention Program or over 36 months of age, please visit TDD for information on additional therapy services.
