Success Stories

Harper Hope: A Parent’s View of the Power of Early Intervention – Rosemary Taylor-Stein, of the HOPE Infant Family Support Program, San Diego County Office of Education, and Karis and Mike Johnson tell about Harper Hope and the role of early intervention. This is an important video for families who are, or will be, receiving early intervention services as well as for current and future early intervention practitioners. In Part 1, Karis and Mike share intimate reflections about their daughter’s birth and early months in the NICU; in Part 2, Karis articulately describes and illustrates the role of early intervention in their lives.

We believe that every child can succeed given the appropriate supports and services. Check out the videos below to learn more about two Connecticut families’ stories.
