hildren's Community Early Intervention Program (EIP) recently moved
from its Tremont Street location to the Martha Eliot Health Center
in Jamaica Plain.
The new location offers improved access and ample parking for patients.
¿We are looking forward to being part of a larger system," says
program director Melanie Griffin. ¿We are also eager to have Martha
Eliot's Healthy Families Program, which serves a similar population
to ours, in such close proximity to us."
The EIP serves young children with developmental delays, and is
part of a statewide system of over 60 EIP sites supervised by the
Massachusetts Department of Public Health. All children from birth
to 3 years of age who are not reaching age-appropriate milestones,
are at risk for developmental delay, or have been diagnosed with
a physical, emotional or cognitive condition that may result in
developmental delay, are eligible for the program. For more information
