Early Intervention Program (Birth to Three)

For parents who may have concerns about the development of their child between the age birth to three years, South Sound Parent to Parent (SSP2P) offers Child Find services. Parents can obtain free developmental screening for their child in five developmental areas: communication, motor skills, adaptive/self-help skills, cognitive/concepts and social, emotional and behavioral functioning. Children with identified developmental delays or who have been medically diagnosed with a disabling condition may qualify to receive free early intervention services.

For information on obtaining a developmental screening or early intervention services for an infant or toddler, please contact South Sound Parent to Parent at (360) 352-1126.


For children age three years through five years, whose parents are concerned about their development, Shelton School District offers free Child Find developmental screening and evaluation services.

Screenings assess the five developmental areas of communication, motor skills, adaptive/self-help skills, cognitive/concepts and social, emotional and behavioral functioning.

Special Education services are provided at the Early Learning Center to eligible preschoolers age three to five who reside within the boundaries of the Shelton School District.

If you would like your child to have a developmental screening or if you have transferred into the district and your child already has an Individual Education Plan (IEP), please contact Marisol Guzman at (360) 462-2139.

If you lack a stable living situation, you and your preschool child have certain rights or protections under the McKinney-Vento Act. We can partner with you to make sure there are no educational barriers for your child. Please contact  Amanda Gonzales at 360-426-1687 ext. 10365 for more information.

For information about developmental milestones, please visit the CDC website.
