The New York Early Intervention Program (EI) provides home and community based developmental services to children, birth through 3 years of age. Services provided include service coordination, evaluations, and specialized therapy. Personal Touch Early Intervention Program (EIP) is contracted by New York to provide this valuable service. Personal Touch EIP employs teams of skilled professionals who are available to travel to Brooklyn, Queens, Bronx, Manhattan, and Staten Island. If after an evaluation a child is found eligible, they are entitled to receive the appropriate therapy to address their developmental needs. In New York, authorized services are provided at no cost to parents/caregivers, regardless of insurance coverage. An authorized service can include: Special Instruction, Speech/Language therapy, Feeding therapy, Occupation therapy, Physical therapy, Social Work, and Nutrition. If the child is diagnosed with Autism, or is on the Autism Spectrum, Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) has been identified as the treatment of choice. We have ABA specialists who will design an individualized curriculum to address each child’s needs and bring forth their potential. Bilingual personnel are available when needed. Therapy can be provided at the most convenient location for each family and child. This includes settings such as the home, daycare, and community.

Personal-Touch believes that the home environment is one of the most important factors in a child's development. Continuity of care between the child's natural environment and community must occur in order for a child to benefit from the program. We strive to work collaboratively with all families toward accomplishing and promoting the overall development of children. It is our belief that with the mutual efforts of dedicated families and skilled professionals, the possibilities for a child's potential are truly endless.

Great program for early intervention!!! My son started the program in June 2017 and we have loved it since. The staff are so attentive and genuinely caring. My son has thrived and developed and came a long way and I owe it to ABA, speech and OT as well as the team at personal touch. My little one loves this place and today will be his last day. I just want to thank everyone at personal touch for helping my Bry grow.
Extremely grateful for this program. They explained everything to me. I don't have transportation and they were able to care for my son at home and at his daycare center. This program has been a blessing to me and my little one.
