The KIDS program of North Dakota is an early-intervention service providing home-based services that focus on the family, free of charge. We help identify learning opportunities and provide support, instruction, information and resources so parents and caregivers can help their child (from birth to age 3) learn and develop to his or her full potential.
Who is eligible?
Eligibility for the KIDS program is based on a comprehensive developmental evaluation that is completed by a Speech/Language Pathologist, Occupational Therapist or Special Education professional.
Services may be available for children with developmental delays in the areas of language, cognitive, physical, social or self-help skills, or whose development is related to a high-risk medical diagnosis that is commonly associated with developmental delays.

He’s achieved motor skills such as sitting, rolling and head control- and most recently during “Tummy Time, ” began propping himself up with his arms.
