Strong Start DC Early Intervention Program (DC EIP) Information For Families

Strong Start Information For Families

The District of Columbia's Early Intervention Program (DC EIP) provides support and services to families with children, from birth through three, with developmental delays and disabilities. 

If you have concerns about your infant or toddler, you can refer a child to Strong Start by:

  • Submitting a referral online (preferred method);
  • Calling the Strong Start Child Find Hotline at (202) 727-3665; or
  • Faxing a completed Strong Start DC EIP Referral Form: English | Español

Strong Start Approach

The Strong Start program uses the primary service provider (PSP) and teaming approach – a recognized best practice for providing early intervention services to children with a developmental delay or disability. Using this approach, families are matched with a lead early interventionist who serves as the primary provider on a child’s team.
