Early Intervention

Early intervention refers to services and supports that can help young children with developmental delays. It’s like

but it’s for eligible infants and toddlers who are behind at reaching developmental milestones. 

Through early intervention, kids from birth to age 3 can get services at home or in the community. Different types of specialists work with kids and their families depending on which skills are delayed. Early intervention focuses on skills in these areas:

  • Physical skills (reaching, crawling, walking, drawing, building)

  • Cognitive skills (thinking, learning, solving problems)

  • Communication skills (talking, listening, understanding others)

  • Self-help or adaptive skills (eating, dressing)

  • Social or emotional skills (playing, interacting with others)


Meet the Early Intervention Staff


Molly Tannery -
Early Interventionist Supervisor

I have been the Early Intervention Supervisor for over 25 years. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Southern Wesleyan University in 1977. I am a parent of an amazing son who is diagnosed with Autism, SDHD and Cerebral Palsy. I know the difficulties families face when raising a child with special needs.

In my free time, I enjoy hanging out with my Mom, taking my son to his favorite place to shop (Goodwill) and attending church. The most rewarding part of my job is seeing children meet their goals for the first time and watching the parent’s excitement.

Confucius said it best: “Choose a job that you love, and you’ll never work a day in your life”.

Early Interventionist

have been an Early Interventionist with The Sky’s the Limit for over 12 years. Prior to that, I worked in preschool and Special Education classrooms. I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 32 years. We have two children who have both graduated with asters and both married this year.

When I meet with my families for the first time, I always say: “Today we are friends but soon, we will be family”. My goal is not only to serve the child but the parent. Teaching parents and giving them the support and the power they need to be the voice of their child is just as rewarding as helping the children meet their goals.  We have an amazing program and cannot wait to meet you!

Early Interventionist

I have been an Early Interventionist at The Sky’s the Limit  for 8 years. I graduated from Clemson University in 2014. I am married to my wonderful husband and we have a sweet baby boy who keeps us very busy. During my spare time, I love going to the lake with my family, shopping and of course, cheering on our Clemson Tigers.

The Sky’s the Limit has given me the opportunity to work with so many amazing families. My favorite part about being an Early Interventionist is seeing the progress of each child. I love helping families find the resources that best meet their child’s needs. I will always be your child’s #1 cheerleader.

Ali Rogers

Early Interventionist

I’ve been an Early Interventionist with The Sky’s the Limit for two years and have loved it every day.  I received my Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood and Family Studies. I started my career as an Assistant Director at a local daycare and realized I wanted to be more hands-on with the children.  I was so lucky to be selected for the EI position at such a great agency and get to work with such amazing children and families.

I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 7 years and we are enjoying parenting our almost four year old son, Dawson. In my free time, I love making memories with my family.
