Montana Milestones Part C Early Intervention Program
Montana Milestones/Part C of IDEA Early Intervention Program is Montana’s overall system of early intervention supports and services for families who have infants or toddlers, from birth through two years of age. Montana Milestones is funded through an annual federal grant under Part C of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). Part C guarantees rights and entitlements for infants and toddlers, ages birth through two years of age, who have significant developmental delays or disabilities or have been diagnosed with a condition associated with significant delays in development and their families.
Accessing early intervention supports and services begins when a parent or other caregiver is first concerned about a baby’s development or when a baby receives a diagnosis of a condition that is associated with significant developmental delay.
