    Agency: Criterion Child Enrichment

    The Criterion Riverway Early Intervention Program (EIP) primary focus of early intervention is family education, training and support. The EIP is designed to enable parents and other caregivers to realistically assess the child’s developmental needs, incorporate educational and therapeutic strategies into daily routines and utilize available community resources.
