According to program director Barbara Prindle Eaton, Early Intervention provides services for children birth to three, and their families. Eligibility is based on the child’s diagnosed disability, established developmental delay, or due to a cluster of child and family criteria that put the child at-risk for delays. Early Intervention is the sole provider in our area for these important first services for infants and toddlers. The program has served local children and families for over 40 years.
The Chromebooks will be used by staff for field work with families, including weekly home visits.
Sturgis East Charter School student and Laptops for KidZ volunteer Hunter Crossman delivered the refurbished Chromebooks to Barbara Prindle Eaton at the agency’s Hyannis office. Just finishing his sophomore year at Sturgis, Mr. Crossman has volunteered with Laptops for KidZ since he was in the second grade.
Laptops for KidZ was established in 2010 by the Masonic Angel Foundation to address the growing digital gap that affects children and families around Cape Cod. The volunteer-operated program has provided nearly 2,200 refurbished devices to schools across Cape Cod and Southeastern Massachusetts.
