Steps for Enrollment into the Early Intervention Program
1. Stop by the clinic, Monday through Friday during business hours to register. Once registered you will be given an appointment for admission lab work. Laboratory specimens are collected on Mondays. At this time a TB screening test will be administered and you will need to return in 48-72 hours for this test to be reviewed by a nurse.

2. You will receive an appointment to meet with a RN and Medical Case Manager. Each will ask you a series of questions in order to obtain a personal health history, perform an assessment, and develop a multidisciplinary plan of care. This meeting will occur on a Friday and will take approximately 2 hours. After this assessment is completed you will receive an appointment to see the physician.

3. On the day of your physician appointment you will be examined, have your laboratory results explained and receive prescriptions and education for necessary medications. On each following visit you will meet with the nurse and case manager to see if you have any additional needs and update your plan of care. Follow up physician visits will be scheduled as ordered by the physician. You will be at the clinic approximately two hours for your initial visit with the physician.
