Thank you for your comments. The Sound Start Babies Early Intervention Program is open to all babies, regardless of a family's ability to pay. State reimbursement for services covers only one third of the cost of providing services. The Lake Drive Foundation/Sound Start Babies Foundation works to raise the necessary funds to meet the shortfall through various fund raising events, grants, and individual donors. We provide bilingual/bicultural education as well as sign language in the homes and in the classroom.
