This program helps newborns and children up to age 3 who are living with or at risk of a developmental delay. A developmental delay is a health problem affecting the child’s brain and/or body. Developmental delays include trouble walking and talking, problems seeing and hearing, and having a hard time interacting with others. The child must meet the Texas Department of Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) ECI rules. Services include case management, family support and education, primary health care, nutrition, speech therapy and other special therapies.
