The EIT hopes to connect children and families to services that will assist children in being successful and happy at home, at school, and in the community
Who are the members of the EIT? The EIT consists of a dedicated group of members from the Enfield Police Department, Enfield Youth Services, Enfield Public Schools, Community Health Resources, Department of Children & Families, and Juvenile Probation.
What is the Early Intervention Team (EIT)? The Enfield EIT is a program designed to identify and intervene with youth experiencing behavioral, social, emotional, developmental or academic difficulties at home, school or in the community.
The goal of the EIT is to connect youth and families to services that will assist children in being successful and happy at home, at school, and in the community.
The EIT was developed to reduce the risk of youth becoming involved in the Juvenile Justice .
Issues Worked On:
Poor academic performance
School attendance issues
Withdrawn from friends and/or family
Emotional, social or behavioral concerns
Who can make a referral? A referral can be made by parents, school staff or community members.
What happens after a referral is made? A meeting date will be arranged when the team can meet with the youth and parent(s)/ caregiver(s). At the meeting, the EIT will work with parents/caregivers to discuss strategies that may increase the youth’s success.
Members of the EIT will follow-up with the family to assist in goal attainment. Additional meetings may be scheduled if further assistance is needed to ensure success.
We are accepting referrals for Enfield School children:
