Of the children enrolled in our Early Intervention Program, 46% make such progress by the age of 3 that they are no longer eligible for services. And 75% make such strides in their development that they narrow the gap with their typically-developing peers. The first step is to call for a FREE developmental evaluation and find out how Kindering can assist your family.
