Nevada Early Intervention Services (NEIS)
Nevada Early Intervention Services (NEIS) programs are available to families with children under the age of three (3) who meet Nevada's eligibility requirements. Early Intervention services are provided in natural environments, including home, playgroup and community settings. Families join together with NEIS staff to develop an Individualized Family Services Plan with outcomes that draw on the family's priorities and concerns.
If you are concerned about your child's development, the first step is to have your child referred for evaluation and assessment. You can refer your child directly to an Early Intervention program or you can have your child's physician or another professional make the referral for you. You will be assigned a service coordinator who will help you through the process.
To learn more about services for infants and toddlers provided by the Aging and Disability Services Division, please contact an Early Intervention Office near you.

What are my rights and why are they important?
Rights protect your family and child. All families enrolled in early intervention programs in Nevada have the same rights. Your rights within the early intervention process begin as soon as you are referred to a program and continue as long as you and your child participate in the early intervention program. The IDEA, Part C law gives families’ rights. You can find more information about these laws at the Early Childhood Technical Assistance Center.
