What is Early Intervention?
Pennsylvania’s early intervention program provides supports and services to families with children from birth to 3 with developmental delays and disabilities. We focus on enhancing a family’s strengths to meet the developmental needs of the child in the child’s natural environment. Natural environments for infants and toddlers may include home, daycare or an extended family member’s home. This may also include a local playground or the grocery store. Services are embedded in the child’s typical routines and activities and are provided at no cost to families.
Who is Eligible?
Infants, toddlers, and preschool children who have special needs due to a developmental delay or disability are eligible to receive early intervention services.
Early Intervention Referrals should be made through the county offices:
