What is Early Intervention
What is Early Intervention in American Samoa?

Early intervention in American Samoa is services and supports designed to help families with
infants and toddlers under the age of three who have a developmental delay or disability.

Early intervention builds upon the natural learning occurring in those first few years. With your
help, early intervention services and supports can enhance your child's development by:

  • Answering your questions about your child's development
  • Assisting you to interact with your child throughout daily routines at home and in the
    community
  • Enhancing your child's developmental and educational growth
  • Supporting your child with developmental delays to become more independent
  • Preventing the need for more and costly intervention in the future
  • Early intervention services for infants and toddlers under the age of three who have a
    developmental delay or disability
