Submitted by megana.olson on Tue, 02/11/2020 - 09:07

Since 1986, Kids Who Count has provided Early Intervention services to families of young children residing in the Nebo School District boundaries. We’ve helped thousands of families and children and we can help you. If you are concerned about your baby or toddler’s development or had a medical professional talk to you about some milestones your child hasn’t yet reached, you may be eligible for early intervention services. The purpose of Early Intervention is to enhance early growth and development in infants and toddlers under three, who have developmental delays or disabilities. Anyone can make a referral to receive a full assessment of your child’s health and developmental status at no cost. If you’re concerned about your infant or toddler, don’t hesitate to contact us. And, we now offer Autism Services for children 2 and older. Visit for more information. We are here to help!
