About Bright Start

The mission of Bright Start is to provide quality comprehensive services to all individuals with special needs and developmental delays so that children, teenagers and adults can achieve their greatest potential.

Located in Aiken, Chester, Greenville, Lancaster, Lexington, Kershaw, Oconee, Pickens, Richland, Spartanburg and York counties of South Carolina, Bright Start is proud to be the first private provider in the state to offer early intervention services to children with disabilities and special needs.  Bright Start has also provided Service Coordination services since 2001 to children ages 3 – 21 and has recently expanded to serve ALL individuals eligible for the Department of Disabilities and Special Needs.

Beginning in March of 1999 with a staff of two, Bright Start now has over 65 employees and is one of the largest private providers in the state.  We believe in a strong partnership with families and are tremendously successful in helping children reach their developmental milestones by building on the strengths of the family and child.

Primary referral sources, including hospitals, physicians health care providers, social services agencies, day care providers, therapists, etc., are required to refer a child, birth to three years of age who may benefit from early intervention services, to BabyNet within two working days after identification (34 CFR Sec.303.321). Once referred, BabyNet wil ask the parent(s)/ guardian for consent before determining eligibility.
