The Early Intervention/Family Support Assistant program is designed to prepare students to deliver a broad range of support services to families with young children who have different abilities. It also prepares students to further studies in related fields and to pursue advanced degrees. For students currently employed in child care, allied health, nursing or human services, it provides an educational opportunity for personal and professional development.

Many of the programs offered at River Valley Community College may be combined with the Early Intervention/Family Support Assistant Certificate for a dual degree option. A State Police Criminal Check is the responsibility of students and may be required for fieldwork and/or employment upon request of an agency.
