Tennessee Early Intervention System (TEIS)

Tennessee Early Intervention System (TEIS) is a voluntary program that offers therapy and other services to families of infants and young children with developmental delays or disabilities. Services are provided at no cost to families. TEIS is critically important to supporting the development of Tennessee children with disabilities and developmental delays as they prepare for school.

NEW: Our webpage has a new look! Early Intervention Service Providers (EIRAs & Therapy Vendors) can now access information on our TEIS Community Resources webpage.

Interested in becoming a therapy vendor? The information to apply can be found on the TEIS Community Resources webpage under Information for Therapy Vendors.
