ENRICH Early Intervention Services
ENRICH is an early intervention team that provides supports and services to families who have children up to three years of age with developmental delays. ENRICH has been supporting children's learning and development in Colorado since 1994. Children with developmental delays sometimes need extra support to fully enjoy, participate, and learn in everyday routines and activities such as playing, communicating with others, moving around, eating, sleeping, and bathing. ENRICH works with families to support each child's learning and development in the everyday places where families spend time - in the home, childcare program, and other places in the community.

The ENRICH team and service coordinator will help families explore funding options for the ENRICH services that are part of the Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP). These funding options may include such sources as private insurance, public insurance (such as Medicaid), or Community Centered Boards. If ENRICH is providing services independent of a child's IFSP, the ENRICH team can help explore options for funding.
