Early Intervention

Early intervention can make a huge positive impact on the lives and development of children with developmental delays and disabilities. If you have questions about whether your child is eligible, what the evaluation process is like, or what age is the right age for a diagnosis, you’re not alone. We’ve gathered plenty of expert advice and useful information to help you through every step of this journey.

Inside our guide to early intervention:

You’ll learn:

Overwhelmed? We get it.

If you live in California, we can help you customize your child’s roadmap, no matter where you are in the journey.

We know how to help families raising kids with disabilities and learning differences because our team has been there: We wrestled with uncertainty and fear over new diagnoses. We felt overwhelmed and isolated going down internet rabbit holes in search of information. We felt the stress of caregiving, the pressure of not enough hours, the professional and financial loss of needing to leave a job in order to try to tackle navigating benefits, services, insurance, and more.

The good news? We used all of this collective experience as fuel to build a team of experts to bring families support, solutions, and relief. And it starts with our Kickstart, a free 10-day period in which you’ll be paired with a dedicated Navigator who will work with you over two Zoom sessions and unlimited messaging to develop a custom roadmap—including goals, documents and notes, guides, and resources—tailored to your family’s unique needs.

What is a Navigator?

Lifeline. Lifesaver. Mentor. Friend. Safe space. These are just some of the ways families describe our Navigators.

Our Navigators are parents who leverage their own personal experience, as well as insights from working with thousands of other families navigating similar paths to care for their children. While you will work with one dedicated Navigator, they are supported by a team of researchers, advocacy experts, and public benefits specialists who all thrive on finding solutions and opportunities for Undivided families.

After your free Kickstart period, you can pursue your customized roadmap on your own or sign up for a paid membership that provides access to a wealth of benefits, including your Navigator who will help you find your wins faster than you could do alone.
