By investing in California's infants and toddlers at risk of a developmental disability, or showing a developmental delay, their lives can be changed, and their need for a lifetime of state-funded services can be reduced... or even eliminated!

The 2009 budget cuts saved the state money by denying these children early interventions. But those unaddressed needs only grow, and un-served infants and toddlers grow up to be children eligible for life-long services. A few years of savings lead to a lifetime of costs.

Renew Early Start, and reinvest in California's most vulnerable children, by restoring funding!
