Home Visiting Service
Home visiting therapy services, also known as home and community-based early intervention (HCBEI), is a service provided to families with children ages birth to three years with special needs and eligible for services through Tennessee’s Early Intervention System (TEIS).
This early intervention is provided in the home or in other community settings and is based on collaborative consultation with “caregivers,” including families, child care providers, and others that spend significant time with children with disabilities.
Siskin Children’s Institute works with TEIS to provide home visiting services to approximately 400 families in the Southeast TEIS District counties of Bledsoe, Bradley, Grundy, Hamilton, Marion, Meigs, McMinn, Polk, Rhea and Sequatchie.
Our goal is to support the entire family, not only the child with special needs. Therefore, program goals include supporting and strengthening the family’s quality of life, increasing caregivers’ sense of competence, and improving family satisfaction with daily routines. Ultimately, improvements in these areas should lead to the child’s growth in three areas: engagement, independence, and social relationships.
