Description

Up To 3 is one of 16 early intervention programs in Utah, contracted with the Utah Department of Health, to provide services under the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA), Part C. This program is housed at the CPD and provides services to families with infants or toddlers below the age of three who have disabilities, developmental delays, or a diagnosed condition that has a high probability of resulting in a developmental delay. Up To 3 services are available to Utah families in Rich, Box Elder, and Cache counties.

The mission of the Up To 3 program is to enhance a family's capabilities and self-confidence to nurture their child's growth and development. Program staff use family-centered practices that support the philosophy that a family's concerns, values, priorities, and resources should establish the framework for the services provided. This process results in the development of an Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP).

Population Served

Children, birth to 3 years, and their families

Training Activities
