Baby Watch Early Intervention Program
DDI Vantage Early Intervention Program provides services for children under the age of three who have developmental delays and disabilities and their families by offering a full range of services to meet their individual needs.

Early Intervention services include:
A full assessment of a child's current health and developmental status.
Service coordination among providers, programs and agencies
Strategies to build on family concerns, priorities, and resources.
Developmental services such as occupational therapy, physical therapy, speech language therapy, nursing, child developmental and special education services.
All developmental services are based on an individual child's needs.
Early Intervention services are provided through the coordinated effort of parents, community agencies, and a variety of professionals.
The DDI Vantage Part C Early Intervention (EI) Program provides professional support for families of children under the age of three who have developmental delays and/or disabilities. By tailoring services to meet the child’s individual needs, our goal is to minimize the effect of the delay, thereby reducing the need for long term intervention throughout the child’s school years. The majority of Early Intervention services take place within the home, recognizing that parents are the most influential teachers for their children
What do I have to pay for the on-the-job training and other DDI Vantage services?Nothing. DDI Vantage has contracts with state agencies that provide funding for services for our clients.
How do I benefit from hiring an employee with a disability?If the job is matched up correctly, most of our clients are loyal and long-term employees. There are also some tax benefits to a company for hiring an individual with a disability. Please check with your tax advisor for details.
How long will the individual need Supported Employment?That depends on the individual. We try to match the job to the individual based on their abilities and work history. For some, it may be as short as a few days. Others may require ongoing support.
Do I have to pay for DDI Vantage employment services?If you are eligible to receive services from the Division of Services for People with Disabilities (DSPD) or the Utah State Office of Vocational Rehabilitation, you DO NOT PAY for our services.
What if I need help to do the job after my on-the-job training?It is important for you that DDI Vantage helps you less as you get better at doing the job, but we will help you as long as you need it by visiting you at work and keeping in contact with your employer. We will be there for you whenever you need us.
Can I receive Supported Employment and Supported Living services from DDI Vantage at the same time?Yes. How much help we can give you depends on your budget that is set up by DSPD.
What do I have to pay for the services provided by DDI Vantage Supported Living?If you are eligible to receive services from the Division of Services for People with Disabilities (DSPD) and are not on a waiting list for their services, you DO NOT PAY for our services.
How do Supported Living services differ from Supported Employment Services?Supported Employment services focus on helping individuals find, learn, and maintain jobs. Supported Living services focus on providing assistance to individuals in personal, every-day activities.
I'm interested, how do I apply?The first thing you would have to do is Apply for DSPD Funding and once you are approved, DSPD will send us your information. to be considered as a potential client. A Support Coordinator will reach out to you to discuss the matter further and decide if this program would be a good fit.
Heidi (mom of Andrey in Wendover)
"Thanks, very much. May God bless you for everything. I cannot find words to thank you. I know there are children in the world who do not have the privilege to enjoy this help. May God bless you. Thanks for everything. Thanks for your help. I have grown on becoming a better mom every day to my boy."
Leslie (Grandmother of Kennalee in Tooele)
Thank you so much! This has been a positive experience for our whole family. I was so discouraged when I first called you, but I have received so much hope through the services offered and the skills I was taught that I feel confident to move forward with confidence now. This is a wonderful program and I feel blessed that we were able to be recipients of these great services."
"DDI Vantage helped us become better parents to our son. They taught us how to help meet his needs and provide the support when we have questions and feel nervous. They helped us get our son a diagnosis and continue to teach us new things at every visit."
