ESS is dedicated to children who have developmental disabilities, developmental delays or are at risk for developmental delays. Our goal is to optimize your baby’s cognitive, physical, emotional and social development, self-sufficiency and chance for success.

Our role is to empower you with knowledge and understanding of your child’s development and with the emotional and practical skills you’ll need to enhance the health, wellness and future of your baby and your family.

Together, you and your ESS team will design a program that best meets the needs of your child, family and lifestyle. Your team may include speech and language pathologists, occupational and physical therapists, educators, early childhood development specialists and social workers.

Services for your child can not be denied because of a lack of insurance coverage, and at this time there is no out-of-pocket cost to families for ESS (insurance copays and deductibles will not be charged to families).
