Home & Community Based Early Intervention Services


Emory Valley Center provides in-home Early Intervention Services to children with a developmental delay. In-home early intervention services are available in a 16 county region for children and their families who qualify for Part C services through the Tennessee Early Intervention System.

  • Anyone who has a concern about a child’s development, age birth through two, can call Tennessee’s Early Intervention System, and make a referral.
  • Children qualify for services if they have a delay in one or more areas of development or a diagnosed condition.
  • This is a voluntary education program through the Department of Education.


Emory Valley Center is contracted to provide services to 500 children in the East Tennessee Region covering 16 counties: Anderson, Blount, Campbell, Claiborne, Cocke, Grainger, Hamblen, Jefferson, Knox, Loudon, Monroe, Morgan, Roane, Scott, Sevier, and Union.

Emory Valley Center’s Early Interventionists:


  • Work with the family in their home to promote their child’s development
  • Support families by offering ideas they can implement every day into their lives to assist in their child’s development
  • Aid families so that their children start school with minimal or no special education supports.
