BabyNet is South Carolina’s interagency early intervention system for infants and toddlers under three years of age with developmental delays, or who have conditions associated with developmental delays.  Anyone (a parent, doctor, caregiver, teacher or friend) can make a referral by the number listed below. Look for signs that an infant or toddler might need extra help. If you suspect a child may have a problem, the earlier you get help, the better!

WHAT IF THE CHILD IS MORE THAN THREE YEARS OLD? If the child is between the ages of 3 and 21, please contact your  local school district.

To make a referral or to get more information contact your local BabyNet office.
