Early Intervention Services

Introduction

Early intervention includes a process of assessing for eligibility and providing support and services for eligible young children with developmental delays and disabilities, and their families. The goal of early intervention is to promote and foster development, as well as to build capacity of the family and immediate community to support the child long-term. Quality early intervention services can minimize the delays and challenges that some young learners experience. Research shows that early intervention services are key in promoting long-term positive outcomes for children with developmental delays and disabilities. If you have a developmental concern about your child, please call us to schedule a multidisciplinary evaluation for your child and family. We are here to help!

Who We Are

The involvement of families is a critical component for successful participation in our program. Families know their children best and can share information with early intervention staff about what is going on with each individual child. Families can also practice interventions in between service sessions to increase opportunities for their child to learn and improve skills.

What is the PICC?
A forum to come together with other families, providers and community agencies to:

LEARN - about current trends, research, new developments or strategies to support children’s healthy
development

COLLABORATE
– PICC is a place to work with others to identify and respond to issues impacting children birth to
five. Participate in Program Planning and be part of the solution!

MEET
– other families, early intervention leaders and other community partners

For more information about the PICC and how to get involved, reach out to your child’s LEA representative or call Jen Fischer at 215-338-7775.
