A Letter from Lakes ECI Director
Hello, my name is Angela Spradlin and I am the Program Director for the ECI program that serves Hunt County. I am a Registered Nurse, Early Intervention Specialist but most importantly, I am a mom. I have 2 children Ryan, my oldest and Harlie, my youngest. At 8 months old, Harlie started out in this very same ECI program that you are now researching. She is currently in High School where she is enrolled in Special Education Classes. As a parent and professional, I want you to understand that the years from birth through three years old represent the most critical time in a child’s development. Research shows that if we can impact a child’s life in the first few years, then we can impact the adult that this child will become.
As a parent of a baby or toddler, you may be looking for answers regarding your child’s development. You will find not only help for your child but support for you and your child’s caregivers. The Early Childhood Intervention (ECI) program of Lakes Regional Community Center is here to help you.
ECI provides supports to families with children from birth to three years old with delays in their development. Infants and toddlers learn from experiences and the people around them in their daily routines. We come to you and your child – providing support in the places where your child normally lives and plays, such as your home, child care center or other community settings. Our focus is to support your family within your daily lives.
Developmental Services, Service Coordination, Speech Therapy, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Nutrition Services & Social Work Services are just some of the services your family may receive. The ECI staff is composed of highly trained professionals who are required to keep up with all of the latest research in order to provide the highest quality services. Please let us know how we can help you and your child. We are here to help in whatever way possible.
