Early On

Early On assists families with infants and toddlers, from birth until 36 months, who have a delay in their development or a diagnosed disability.

We provide evaluations for your child's development right in your home or at the Kent ISD. If they qualify, we create a plan and provide services & support to help your child reach their full potential.

To connect with Early On at Kent ISD, call 616-365-2310.
