What is Early Intervention?
Pennsylvania Early Intervention is a free program offered by the county where your child lives that provides:
- Support and services to families with children birth to age five, who have developmental delays and disabilities.
- Support services and resources for children that enhance daily opportunities for learning provided in settings where a child would be if he/she did not have a developmental delay and disability.
- Provides families’ independence and competencies.
- Respects families’ strengths, values and diversity.
Early Intervention supports and services are available for:
- Physical development, including vision and hearing
- Cognitive development
- Communication development
- Social or emotional development
- Adaptive development
Our therapists and special instructors provide service in the child’s natural surroundings (i.e., home, daycare, preschool), during his/her daily routines. In other words, our specialists travel to your child; you do not bring your child to us.
