Challenge Early Intervention Program is under contract with the NYC EI Program (NYCEIP) to provide Early Intervention Services. NYCEIP is a public program for children under the age of three who are either suspected of having or at risk for developmental delays or disabilities. Potentially eligible children must be referred to the NYC Early Intervention Program by calling 311. EIP is funded by the New York State and county governments. All EIP services are provided at no cost to parents. Health insurance may be used for approved services. A child’s eligibility for the program can be determined only by state approved evaluators under contract, and all service must be authorized by the county.
