Certificate in Early Intervention

The Certificate in Early Intervention prepares you to develop a system of services and support for infants, toddlers, and young children with disabilities or delays in development. You’ll benefit from advanced training in comprehensive, evidence-based early intervention practices, including a “system of care” approach to the delivery of services.

In the classroom, you’ll engage with subject matter experts and instructors from Georgetown University’s Center for Child and Human Development, a designated University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (UCEDD). You’ll leave the program with the values, skills, and knowledge needed to intervene effectively and support young children in a culturally competent, family-centric partnership.
