Tell Governor Hochul that kids with developmental delays and disabilities can't wait any longer to receive the essential, life-changing services they need. Call on her to join with the Assembly and Senate in including an 11% increase in Early Intervention reimbursement rates in the new state budget. The increase will help ensure providers are there when kids need them.
Call (518) 474-8390; Press 3, then press 1
Not sure what to say? Try this:
My name is _____ and I live in [city/town]. I am a
- parent of a child with a developmental delay or disability
- [type of therapist/provider] who works with children who have developmental delays and disabilities
- New Yorker who cares about children with developmental delays and disabilities
I urge Governor Hochul to join with the Assembly and Senate in this year's budget to address the severe shortage of Early Intervention providers in New York by including an 11% increase in the reimbursement rate. Kids can't wait when they need help with speech, feeding, motor skills, or other challenges. Service providers have to be there when kids need them.
Thank you for your time and for supporting children and families.
