In NH Family-Centered Early Supports and Services (FCESS) are delivered by contractual agreements between Bureau of Developmental Services and designated non-profit and specialized service agencies located throughout the state.

Anyone who is concerned about an infant or toddler's development, including a parent, may make a referral to FCESS. The program is designed for children birth through age three who have a diagnosed, established condition that has a high probability of resulting in delay, are experiencing developmental delays, or are at risk for substantial developmental delays if supports and services are not provided.

Family-centered early supports and services are provided within a child's home or where a child spends time. In this way, a child and family are better able to participate and become more actively involved in their community.

Family-centered early supports and services are provided in all communities throughout NH and can include any of the supports and services listed below:

  • Family Support, Education and Counseling
  • Vision Services
  • Hearing Services
