School-Age Services

After a child's third birthday, children and their families will transition out of Early Intervention (EI). As part of this process, your child will be reassessed to determine if they are eligible to receive services from the Miami County Board of Developmental Disabilities (Riverside). If found eligible, the child will connect with our Children's Team Service & Support Administration team and be designated a Service & Support Administrator (SSA or case manager).

The SSA will provide a variety of supports and resources to help the child lead a happy, self-directed life. The SSA will also advocate for the child throughout their education, supporting both the child and the school in achieving the child and family's desired outcomes. For more about our Children's Services, please contact us.
