Early Support for Infants
and Toddlers (ESIT)
ESD 112 is the local lead agency for Clark, Klickitat, Pacific and Skamania Counties.
Early Support for Infants and Toddlers (ESIT) is the Washington State Department of Early Learning program designed to be the first point of contact for any parents concerned about the development of their children Birth-3 years old. ESIToffers free developmental screenings for infants and toddlers along with an informational meeting for parents with a Family Resources Coordinator. Once a child is screened, a Family Resources Coordinator helps each family access the Early Intervention services through a referral system and provides each family with additional community resources for support.
Being the child's primary teacher and greatest advocate, parents can discuss their child's development, schedule a screening, or talk with a certified Family Resources Coordinator about Early Intervention services by calling the ESIT Intake Coordinator at 360.750.7507 anytime between 8:00 a.m.- 5:00 p.m., Mon - Fri.
Once children turn 3 years old, their services are transitioned to the school district in which the family resides. For an understanding of this process, please read the parent workbook entitled Our Next Step to help you plan and prepare for the public school transition.
