Our early intervention service coordinators provide home-, center-, and community-based services for children from birth to age 4 through Baltimore City’s Infants and Toddlers Program. Service coordinators create an Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP), coordinate and monitor services, provide family education and support, and connect families with community resources. 

The Child and Family Support Center has two outreach early intervention service coordination programs for Baltimore City families - Primeros Pasos, for families in the Hispanic community, and Kodem Kol, for families in the Orthodox Jewish Community.
