Early Intervention

Children are one of life’s most precious gifts.  They grow and develop in unique ways and bring joy to our lives from the moment they are born.  As a loving parent, it’s natural for you to worry about your child’s development.  You may find yourself asking questions like:

  • Is my child behind the other kids?
  • Should my child be talking more at this age?
  • Why isn’t my child learning as quickly as I had hoped?

California MENTOR, Early InterventionBy turning to Creative Home Programs (CHP), a partner of California MENTOR, you can find answers to questions about your child’s development.  CHP is an Early Intervention service provider that specializes in supporting children from birth to age 3 who have developmental disabilities and other complex challenges—including autism spectrum disorders.

We have a track record of success serving children with special needs that spans more than 25 years.  Today we support hundreds of children through a network of experienced early intervention specialists, as well as physical, occupational, and speech therapists.

In-home Therapy Services

We know that raising a child with a developmental disability is a journey that takes knowledge, love, patience and support.  And because a child’s home shapes early life experiences, we deliver specialized services in your own home, where your child can naturally learn and develop.  A specialist can also provide support where a kid can be a kid, or at a setting that fits within your child’s needs, including:

  • Parks
  • Libraries
  • Doctors offices
  • Childcare settings

Our caring early intervention specialists use structured, play-based learning and focus on leveraging your child’s strengths during weekly sessions.  Each session involves applied behavior analysis (ABA) and is designed around the needs of your child.  With a focus on sensory development, we may help him or her improve skills, such as:

  • Eating
  • Talking
  • Playing or interacting with others
  • Communicating
  • Physical awareness
  • Reasoning
  • Motor skills
  • Walking

After we receive a referral from a Regional Center, we conduct a developmental assessment to determine if the child qualifies for early intervention services and the levels of supports needed.
