Please adopt the Assembly's Budget proposal to restore Early Start. This program can and does changes lives, and saves the state money by reducing the number of children who would otherwise need a lifetime of services and supports!

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      I am a developmental pediatrician. Early Start is the treatment for my patients. It makes a difference in their ultimate functioning. It pays to invest in young children.

      Babies and children who receive Early Start Services get a big jump on achieving as much independence as possible, often or sometimes eliminating the need for far costlier services as they age.
