I am in Medford Oregon. Currently I am studying Community Health, and I am following families with high risk or special needs infants. Many of our clients recieve Early Intervention services. This can be an excellent resource for families. I have several clients who have children with diagnoses such as cerebral palsy, gastroesophogeal reflux w/failure to thrive, endocrine problems that utilize Early Intervention and I know they are glad to have it. I have not utilized it myself here in OR because my children were born and raised in CA during their early preemiehood. Services in CA are amazing compared to what they are here in OR, as far as access and availability.
