Early Intervention

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.
