Birth to 3 Program: Information for Families

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, in-person face-to-face contacts, such as home visits, have been temporarily stopped for the Birth to 3 Program. In-person contacts will instead be done by phone or online.


Every family wants their child to grow and learn to their fullest potential. Some children who have developmental delays or disabilities and their families may want support in understanding their child's unique development. One way this support is provided is through early intervention¹. The Wisconsin Early Intervention program is known as the Wisconsin Birth to 3 Program.

No matter where you live in Wisconsin, the county is responsible for providing Birth to 3 Program services to eligible children and their families. Contact the Birth to 3 Program in the county where you live if you are concerned about your child's development.
