Babies Cain't Wait (BCW)

Babies Can't Wait (BCW) is Georgia's comprehensive, coordinated, statewide, interagency service delivery system for infants and toddlers, ages birth to three, who have developmental delays or disabilities, and their families.

Early intervention services may include assistive technology, audiology, family training and counseling, certain health services, medical diagnostic services, certain nursing services, nutrition services, occupational, physical, and speech/language therapies, psychological services, social work, special instruction, vision services, and transportation to services.

The focus of Babies Can't Wait is to help reduce the need for special services later in life by helping children with developmental disabilities reach their maximum developmental potential

Children, regardless of income, may be eligible for BCW in one of two ways:

  1. Children are automatically eligible if they are diagnosed with certain mental or physical conditions.
  2. Children who are experiencing significant delays in their development may be eligible.

BCW provides evaluation and assessment, at no cost to families, to determine eligibility and the scope of services needed. BCW also provides service coordination at no cost to families, which assists families in accessing services and identifying resources to help pay for services.
