Montgomery County Infants and Toddlers Program (MCITP)

MCITP provides early intervention services to assist families with their efforts to address their children’s developmental and special needs. MCITP accepts referrals for families with children between birth and 34 ½ months. (referrals made after 34 ½ months go to Child Find and not ITP) For children who qualify, MCITP provides services to families with children between birth and the beginning the school year following their fourth birthday. Families and early intervention providers work as a team to define priorities, learn about available resources and discuss the child’s strengths and needs. 

Early intervention services are provided in the child's natural environment (home and community settings where a child is during the day). The following may be provided based on each individual child's and family’s needs:

  • Assistive Technology
  • Audiology
  • Interpreting
  • Family counseling
  • Family support
  • Family training
