ELIGIBILITY EVALUATION

PARENT INTERVIEW

Our team performs parent interviews over the phone or in-person using an assessment tool called the

Questions include:

 

  • What is your family medical history?

  • What is your child's birth/medical history?

  • What is your child's current weight/height

  • Questions about your child's nutrition, including what and how they eat.

  • Questions about your child's daily routines (i.e. How does your day begin? How does your child participate in daily routines? How much does your child do for him/herself? How is your child interacting w/others?)

  • What are your child's interests?

  • What are your child's/family's strengths?

  • What are your main concerns?

IN-PERSON EVALUATION

Our team uses hands-on evaluation, observation, as well as a tool called the TPBA (Trans-Disciplinary Play Based Assessment) to determine a child's eligibility.

A child is eligible to receive Tiny-K early intervention services if:

 

  • The child is automatically eligible due to established risk for developmental delay.

  • The child demonstrates a developmental delay of 25% in one developmental area or a 20% delay in 2 or more developmental areas.

  • The child is deemed eligible to receive services based upon evaluators informed clinical opinion.
