Key Human Services is committed to providing the best possible Birth to Three experience for each child and family. In this early intervention program for children ages birth to three and their families, we work to accommodate the needs and desires of the family and to build relationships based on mutual respect.
Our program emphasizes family-focused, family-directed intervention. We work to meet each family's agenda by encouraging open communication and following the family's lead in each session. We focus on active listening and reflection throughout the evaluation and planning stages to develop a shared understanding of each child's strengths and needs, as well as the strengths and needs of the family.
One family tells us, "This program and the therapists have literally changed our lives and the lives of our children."
Birth to Three offers a unique opportunity for children and their families to receive support in their natural environment. Our goal is seamless service delivery.
Our role is to promote exploration, guide discovery, expand knowledge, and spark fresh curiosity. Through modeling, description, and reflection, we strive to highlight the enormity of successful learning and education that the family is already achieving through their daily interactions. By coaching and presenting various strategies, we expand this success throughout daily experiences and routines.
Birth to Three offers a unique opportunity for children and their families to receive support in their natural environment. Our goal is seamless service delivery. Everything is an option in terms of natural learning opportunities; natural routines, such as sleeping and eating; and full family interaction with parents, siblings, grandparents, and others. The flexibility of Birth to Three allows children and families to receive support in any environment they choose, including their home, childcare facility, grocery store, library, the park, walks, etc. Our transdisciplinary model empowers families to address new skills through routines under the guidance of their trusted primary provider.
To provide children and families with the greatest opportunity for growth and achievement, we develop individualized plans for services and supports based on the child's strengths and the family's needs and priorities. The primary provider builds on the family's existing educational activities and provides additional and alternative approaches. Through this process, families learn new ways to promote skills through natural learning opportunities in everyday routines.
