The ENRICH Early Intervention team has been supporting the learning and development of infants and toddlers in Colorado since 1994. As with most age-eligible early childhood services, over the years our practitioners lose touch with children and families who graduate from the program. The “Reunion Videos” project re-connects with families who received early intervention services as long as 20 years ago. In these videos the families look back at archival photos and videos and discuss what early intervention services meant to them, which aspects of the services were most useful, and what has happened since. Additional videos will be added.

The video also features an interview with Amy’s identical twin, Meg.
