Georgia Parent Infant Network for Educational Services (Georgia PINES) is a statewide early intervention program for families of children birth to five years of age with a diagnosed hearing loss and/or visual impairment. Families receive information and training to assist their children to develop to their potential across all areas of development. All services are provided in the home or other appropriate natural environment. All services are free to Georgia PINES families.
Georgia PINES provides training to professionals who deliver specialized services focused on hearing and/or vision loss to families, technical assistance and family training, and in-services/workshops on sensory loss and its implications. Georgia PINES also makes referrals to and collaborates with Babies Can’t Wait, the Georgia Sensory Assistance Project (GSAP), and many other agencies.
