Educational and Developmental Intervention Services

As a department of the U.S. Naval Hospital, EDIS offers help to children with special needs, through federally mandated Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) programs and non-IDEA services. The mission of EDIS is to maximize the potential of children who are identified or at risk for delays and provide strategies to assist in their development and independence. EDIS promotes family-based care, closely involving families in the development of service plans. The staff of EDIS comes from a variety of fields to include: Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech-Language Pathology, Psychology and Early Childhood Special Education. There are two programs within EDIS: Early Intervention, for children from birth to age 3, and Related Services as part of the DoDEA schools, for students from ages 3 to 22. Services are provided in the least-restrictive environment, Natural environment (i.e. home, CDC, etc) for Early Intervention, and in the school for Related Services.

Children with disabilities, through support of programs like EDIS, have the opportunity to fully develop their physical, social, emotional, communication, and cognitive potential. Today these children are achieving higher levels of education. EDIS hopes to further the development of children with special needs, bridging the gap between them and children without disabilities.
