DISTRICT EARLY INTERVENTION CENTRE

Rashtriya Bal Swasthya Karyakram (RBSK) or Child Health Screening and Early Intervention Services is a new initiative by the Government of India launched in February 2013 which is aimed at screening children for 4 Ds - Defects at birth, Diseases, Deficiencies and Development Delays including Disabilities.

The target group under RBSK program is estimated to be 27 crore children under the age of 18 years and is divided into three age groups – 0 to 6 weeks, 6 weeks to 6 years and 6 years to 18 years.

Under its organizational structure, Accredited Social Health Activists (ASHA’s) and Mobile Health Teams (MHT) will do the community screening, while the District Early Intervention Centers (DEIC) located in the District headquarters will screen, diagnose and treat children referred from the community.

Further all neonates delivered in institutions will be screened by a pediatrician in Delivery Point Screening. DEICs are well equipped to attend to the children referred from the community and have the following specialists – Pediatrician, Medical Officer, Early Interventionist, Speech therapist, Audiologist, Optometrist, Lab technician, Dentist and a Dental Hygienist apart from the clerical staff.

Children diagnosed with any of the 30 listed health conditions shall receive follow up treatment including surgeries at tertiary level, free of cost.

The services provided by DEIC include occupational and physical, psychological, cognitive, audiological, language, vision, speech, and nutritional therapies apart from laboratory services.

DEICs also provide other ancillary services like assistance in getting disability certificates.
