Daven's story of Early Intervention paving the way to success for Daven and his family!
Helping families support and promote a child’s development within family activities and community life, our Early Intervention program connects families with services, such as occupational, speech or physical therapy, helping infants and toddlers grow and develop, and helping their families care for them. This is a voluntary program, and does not discriminate based on race, culture, religion, income level, or disability.
Community Connections is the only organization providing intellectual and developmental disability Early Intervention and Family Support services in Southwest Colorado (Archuleta, Dolores, La Plata, Montezuma and San Juan Counties).
