KenCrest Birth to Three Services in the State of Delaware

KenCrest DE Birth to Three Mission

Our mission is to provide services to children to enhance their potential by working collaboratively with families to ensure knowledge and growth.

KenCrest has been providing services to children and their families in the State of Delaware since 2010. We support children from birth to age three and their families in the State of Delaware with a variety of services available in New Castle, Kent, Sussex, New Milford and Newark.

Best Practices

KenCrest demonstrates best practices in the field of Early Intervention and supports a team approach when working with children and their families. All services focus on the concerns of the family or caregiver and the daily routines of the child.

KenCrest coaches and supports caregivers to implement chosen strategies throughout the child’s day. All services are provided in the child’s home, child care setting, or requested community environment (natural environment of the child and family).

Initial Evaluations

In the State of Delaware, the KenCrest evaluation team will go to the family’s home or the family will come to the clinic to complete a Multidisciplinary Evaluation (MDE) in the following areas:

  • Social/Emotional
  • Communication
  • Physical
  • Adaptive
  • Cognitive

The evaluation process includes the parents or caregivers who collaborate with the evaluation team. The MDE will determine eligibility for Early Intervention services.

Evaluations for birth to three are provided in New Castle, DE.

Service Coordination

KenCrest personnel work as service coordinators in the State of Delaware to empower families and enhance their ability to negotiate service systems. We are responsible for coordinating a child’s initial evaluation and assisting a family in obtaining necessary support. As Service Coordinators, KenCrest personnel serve as the single points of contact for eligible children and their families or caregivers. Service Coordinators additionally monitor each child’s program plan and services, and keep timelines on assessments, case notes, and all other required documentation. Service Coordination is available in New Castle, Kent, Sussex, New Milford and Newark.

Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP)

If the child qualifies for services, the Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP) will be developed. The IFSP contains desired outcomes that the parents or caregivers have identified based on the family’s concerns, priorities, and resources. Services are then specified with the goal of supporting the child or family to meet the outcomes in the IFSP.
