  • Are under the age of 3 years old and
  • Live in Fairfax County or the cities of Fairfax or Falls Church and

    * Fairfax County is committed to nondiscrimination in all county programs, services and activities. To request reasonable accommodations or to receive this information in an alternate format, call Virginia ITC at 1-800-234-1488 or TTY 1-804-771-5877.

Identifying a problem early in a child’s life can help a family obtain the services and supports needed to promote their child’s development. The first few years of a child’s life are a sensitive period in the process of development, laying a foundation in childhood and beyond for cognitive functioning; social and emotional skills; behavior and self-regulatory capacities; and physical health. Infant & Toddler Connection of Fairfax-Falls Church assists families of infants and toddlers birth to 3 with developmental delays and/or disabilities in helping their children learn and develop through everyday activities and routines so that they can participate fully in family and community activities.
