The Tri-Valley SELPA serves infants ages 0-2 years who have been determined by the SELPA, County Office of Education or Regional Center to require early intervention services because of developmental delays. Infant services emphasize working with the infant, parent, and other family members in the natural environment.
The SELPA directly provides infant services for children considered “solely low incidence” because their primary disability is a hearing, vision, or orthopedic impairment. These services are provided based on the Individualized Family Services Plan (IFSP) for each child, and are provided primarily in the home. In addition, the SELPA runs a weekly play group for infants and their families at a location in Dublin.
The Alameda County Office of Education provides services for all other eligible infants with developmental delays. These children also receive services in the home and in a weekly play group settings, as guided by their IFSPs. The county infant classrooms are located in Oakland, Hayward, and Berkeley.
The SELPA and its member districts participate in Childfind activities designed to locate infants who may benefit from special education early intervention services. Please contact your district or the SELPA Infant Coordinator if you believe your child may have developmental delays.
