Early On Program


The Early On Infant Development Program at the Monroe County Intermediate School District (MCISD) is designed to support families with children (birth to three years) who have developmental delays or disabilities.

The first few years of a child's life are very important, but children grow and learn at different rates. If you have questions about how your child is developing, or if you think that your child might need extra help, call Early On Michigan. Early On helps families get the help they need for their children. We believe that parents know what is best for their families. At Early On, we listen to you. You will find friendly, supportive, and knowledgeable people who will talk to you about your concerns. Sometimes, we will arrange a free evaluation. If the evaluation shows that your child needs help, we'll tell you how to get that help at little or no cost. Call 1-800-EARLY ON (327-5966) for free information about your child's development and Early On services, or visit us on the Web at
