*New: Make an Online Referral to BabyNet today

What is BabyNet?

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. 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!  Click HERE to find more information on referring a child to BabyNet.


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.

What are families saying about their BabyNet experience?

The team we worked with from beginning to end was excellent.  The program improved our child and family outcomes.  We appreciate all the work and care.

This process was very easy as an end user, with immense benefits to my child and my family.  I will forever be an advocate of this model of early intervention! This program is working and has a meaningful impact on lives. Thank you!

BabyNet did an amazing job finding & getting the help my son needed.  It was a huge stress relief having someone following up on approvals & paperwork!

I am very thankful for all the resources we received through BabyNet. The Early Intervention Specialist and Speech Therapist our son was able to work with (and continues to work with) have made a real difference in his life and ours. From the moment he started working with them, it felt like they truly cared. 











Pursuant to Executive Order 2016-20, lead agency designation for South Carolina's Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) Part C program, known in South Carolina as "BabyNet", will be transferred from South Carolina First Steps to School Readiness to the South Carolina Department of Health and Human Services, effective July 1, 2017.
