Learn more about the state’s Infant Toddler program and CBRS. The North Carolina Infant-Toddler Program is a variety of agencies working together to provide early intervention services for children ages birth to three who have special needs and their families. Early intervention services help young children grow and develop and support their families in caring for them. The agencies responsible for early intervention in our area are called Children’s Developmental Services Agencies. Children enrolled in the Infant-Toddler Program may be eligible for a variety of services, including evaluations, service coordination, assistive technology, and specialized therapies. Early intervention serves South Charlotte and Union County and is on the provider lists of both the Mecklenburg County Children’s Developmental Services Agency (Carlton Watkins Center) and Concord Children’s Developmental Services Agency. A child may be eligible therapy services on a sliding scale through their county and state.

Community-Based Rehabilitative Services (CBRS.) is developmental intervention uniquely designed to enhance cognitive, physical, behavioral, self-help, social-emotional, and language skills. This rehabilitative therapy for infants and toddlers is play with a purpose. CBRS is one service available to support children and families from birth to age three who have been determined eligible by the Children’s Developmental Services Agency (CDSA) for the North Carolina Infant Toddler Program.
In addition to CBRS for birth to three year olds, we also offer a similar service for children over age three. We will address your child’s needs in your home or in their preschool environment; assist in working toward improved participation and performance across all areas of development.
Through CBRS, professionals will work with your child and family as a team to build a plan of supports and services for desired outcomes related to your child’s development. The team members will share with you information and resources, and identify strategies and activities related to the outcomes. This plan will become the foundation for your child’s success.
Therapists travel to the child’s home or center to assist both the child and the caregiver of children ages birth to three years of age. Funding availability determines both the length and visits once per week for one hour. The primary interventionist works with transdisciplinary team members to plan and implement activities based on each child’s needs. The team includes the expertise of an early childhood special education teacher, a speech-language and motor therapist and the consultation services of a licensed psychologist and social worker. Progress is documented on an Individual Family Service Plan (IFSP). For more information contact your local Children’s Developmental Services Agency.
