An agency aiming to help your child bloom into his or her full potential

Welcome to Abilities in Bloom, Inc.  

We are a family encouragement agency seeking to nurture the strengths of children with developmental challenges.  Identifying these abilities early will enable them to grow and bloom into independent and thriving members of the community.

Abilities in Bloom, Inc. is a New York state approved provider of Early Intervention services

What is Early Intervention?

Early Intervention provides services, education, information and support to infants and toddlers who have a developmental delay or a diagnosed condition.  The purpose of Early Intervention is to decrease the impact of the delay.  Services are designed to identify and meet a child's needs in five developmental areas including physical development, cognitive development, communication, social or emotional development, and adaptive development.

Early Intervention is a family-centered program.  Providers are expected to use a developmental approach that follows outcomes desired by the family.  Strategies and methodologies are utilized that will meet the needs of your individual family.  Our service providers will remain respectful of your family dynamic and the parental routines and strategies that you have established.

Caregiver involvement is a required and crucial component of Early Intervention services. Providers and parents are expected to actively engage throughout the sessions as often as possible.  When parents can not be present as a result of work or personal commitments communication is exchanged between providers and caregivers.  In person meetings, telephone contacts, and communication notebooks can all be utilized when necessary.  Carry over ideas are discussed consistently and families are encouraged to incorporate them into their day to day routines.

For families seeking additional support and information our professionals will inform you of local trainings, educational conferences and workshops that are pertinent to your child’s needs.  We also provide information on other community resources which may be of assistance to you and your child.

Abilities in Bloom, Inc. is a fully inclusive agency.  Provider services are rendered without regard to race, creed, color, national origin, sex, age, disability, sexual orientation, religion, genetic predisposition, carrier status, or marital status.
