Birth to 3

The Connecticut Birth to Three System was created by state legislation and federal legislation known as the Individuals With Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).   Part C of IDEA is a program that assists states in operating a comprehensive statewide program of early intervention services for the families of infants and toddlers, ages birth up to age 3.
