Birth to 3 Program

The Birth to Three Program works with children ages birth to 3 with a variety of special needs, including delays in walking and talking, prematurity, Down Syndrome, brain damage, failure to thrive and birth defects. Parental involvement is a major program component. Children generally remain in the Program until they reach age 3, achieve appropriate age level development or they move from the county. The Program earned high marks during the annual State review this year. In particular, the team was noted to have done an outstanding job in responding to continuing high referral volumes while demonstrating great teamwork. 159 children have been served in the program through September 2018, exceeding the previous high of 151 during the same time period in 2017. The program’s average annual enrollment from 2012-2016 was 134 children. Data furnished by the State comparing Shawano’s recent annual enrollments to all Wisconsin counties reveals that Shawano’s performance far surpasses the average for all of Wisconsin’s Birth to Three Programs. Data shows that Shawano enrolled 70% of potentially eligible children while the average across all of Wisconsin’s 72 counties was 20%.
