Early Intervention

Our two Early Intervention programs are uniquely specialized for families of children ages birth to three. The Arc's Shapiro team of early childhood specialists works together with parents and other family members to maximize the growth and development of children by supporting the advancement of motor, communication and social skills.


Shapiro Early Intervention is a referral based program open to any child birth to age 3 who has or is at risk for developing a delay or disability. Through therapy and instruction, caregiver training is provided in the home or in day care centers with flexible appointments available to meet the needs of working families.


A center-based private Early Intervention program for children birth to 3 years old which operates out of the Stepping Stones school in Roseland. This program is structured to meet and strengthen every aspect of development during this critical growth period, including cognitive, physical, social and communication skills. Here, parents and caregivers are encouraged to participate in support groups to share knowledge, experience and understanding. Additional information is available at www.steppingstonesschoolnj.com.
