TRE Services are:
We pay close attention to what makes each person we serve special, tailoring the programs and services that are available to suit their individual needs.
We work with people, some with disabilities and delays, throughout the course of their lives, supporting them from birth, before school, through school, and as adults and seniors.
We go to where the people we serve live, work, learn, and play in order to make receiving services as easy as possible.
We help find the right partners for accurate diagnosis and exceptional care, working closely with families and caregivers along the way.

Navigation and Quality can help determine if someone qualifies for a Medicaid waiver or other services, help them enroll, and connect them to resources in the community. This team assists with Delay and Disability Determination, Intake and documentation, community resource referral, quality monitoring and review, and incident investigation. If you need assistance with eligibility determination, the first step is to contact our Navigation and Quality Department at 719.380.1100 to begin the process of completing an application.
Service Coordination is also known as Case Management, and is a person-centered, family and community-focused service to build relationships with the people we serve, working with them and their caregivers to write successful service plans and monitor services to ensure needs are being met. This team helps with enrollment in services, individualized service plan creating and monitoring, paperwork completion and submission assistance, goal setting and strategy collaboration, problem-solving and crisis management, and meeting or appointment attendance, if needed.
Early Intervention (EI) meets a child’s need in their natural environment, designed for infants and toddlers ages birth to three years old, with developmental delays, and is provided to Colorado families at no cost, regardless of income or insurance. TRE Early Intervention teams are pediatric professionals geographically located throughout southern Colorado and comprise a collaborative group of physical, occupational, speech, and behavioral therapists, developmental interventionists, and nutritionists who work together to coordinate and implement the most effective treatment plans for the infants and children they serve.
Because an infant or toddler learns through interactions, parents and other caregivers are important members of TRE’s Early Intervention team. TRE’s Early Intervention program employs and contracts with many early intervention service providers. These providers maintain appropriate credentials and licensure for their professional disciplines. Additionally, The Resource Exchange partners with local school districts to determine eligibility and then deliver services in the child’s home.
Our Family Support Services Program builds up a family’s capacity so they can best support their family member with disabilities or delays and ensure their family member remains within the family setting they choose. This team helps care for the caregiver and also assists them with costs that are beyond those normally experienced by other families. Through Colorado general funds, this program provides funding for eligible families, respite through TRE’s Break Time program, parent education, stress intervention, and self-care classes, and community support groups in El Paso County.
Break Time is a community respite program that fills a critical need in our community for families with children who have special needs, such as severe developmental or physical disabilities, or severe behavioral needs. The program’s primary goal is to significantly reduce the stressors faced by many families who have children with special needs.
Baby and Toddler Playgroups (Park and Teller Counties) are open to the entire community in Park and Teller Counties. The Resource Exchange and Early Intervention Colorado offer this through a federal program to children with developmental delays who are birth to three years old and their families to enhance early childhood development.
TRE is committed to supporting Early Childhood Mental Health efforts and well-being of the entire family through evidence-based parenting classes at no cost to our families. Please contact your Service Coordinator for available classes and how to sign up.
