ABOUT US

Kids Who Count is a non-profit organization serving families and children in South Utah County since 1986. Our mission is to empower families to optimize the developmental potential of their young children.

 Families and children who’ve come to Kids Who Count for support have been met with a compassionate team of therapists, nurses and special educators with unparalleled training and experience in early childhood development. We understand the challenges of raising a child with delays or disabilities—many of us have been there ourselves.

 Our family-focused approach comes from 30 years’ experience serving young children with special needs in our Early Intervention program. Today, we are expanding services to include Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) services for children on the Autism Spectrum. We’ve helped generations of young children and families and we can help you.

If you are concerned about your child’s development our Early Intervention Program can help!

Early Intervention

Early Intervention is the process of anticipating, identifying, and responding to concerns about a child’s development to minimize potential adverse effects and maximize healthy development. Infants and toddlers learn at their own pace, some may need extra help to develop certain skills. Other children may have special health care needs or diagnosed conditions which require specialized services and treatment to improve outcomes.

Early Intervention services may begin at any time between birth and age three; however, when early intervention is needed, the earlier it is provided, the better outcome for the child and family.  In Utah, Early Intervention services for children ages 0-3 are administered by the Utah Department of Health Baby Watch Early Intervention Program under Part C of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).  Since 1986, Kids Who Count has been providing Early Intervention services to families residing in the Nebo School District boundaries. Each year we help hundreds of families with concerns about their young child’s development.

Kids Who Count provides a full developmental evaluation as the first step to find out if your child is eligible for Early Intervention Services. Evaluations are provided at no cost to the family. This takes place in your home with you, your child, and a team of early intervention professionals who will observe how your child plays communicates, and interacts with others.

Autism Services

We specialize in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)—a therapy based on the science of learning and behavior which is widely recognized as the most effective, evidence-based treatment for autism. ABA methods have been used and studied for decades to help children with autism and related developmental delays increase helpful behaviors and decrease those that are harmful. ABA is endorsed by the U.S. Surgeon General and the American Academy of Pediatrics. (Click here to learn more about ABA Therapy)

In addition to ABA, we utilize a broad suite of behavioral approaches and supplemental therapies recognized as best practice that help the whole child and family. From speech and occupational therapy, to mental health, family support, and parent training, our team of expert professionals will coordinate services to implement the most effective programs to help you and your child.

We celebrate what is…and commit to what can be!
