What is WV Birth to Three?

West Virginia Birth to Three is a system of services  and supports for children ages birth to three who have a delay in their development or may be at risk for a delay. The early intervention services are offered at no cost to families and provided in the child's daily natural environment (home or community setting).

Who is eligible?

Any child in West Virginia between the ages of birth through 35 months may be eligible if the child:

  • Is not reaching age-appropriate milestones in one or more areas of development,
  • Is at risk for development delay, or
  • Is diagnosed with a condition that may result in a development delay.

How can a child/family get help?

Anyone (a parent, doctor, caregiver, teacher, or friend) can make a referral. If the child is determined eligible, an Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP) is written based on the individual needs of the child and family within 45 days of the referral.
