We’ve added two more links in our resources section. Each one of them are related to early intervention resources.
Many families with younger children being transplanted often need these resources to help their children catch up from delays caused by their diagnosis previous to transplant. Every state requires that early intervention be required thanks to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) –Part C. Evaluation is free of charge. And services are often free of charge also. If you have a child under the age of 6 and you suspect they might have delays, you should check out the following links for more information on the services available.
