Early Intervention Services
We represent children and students of all ages. Under the IDEA and Pennsylvania law, children with special needs may be eligible for early intervention services starting at birth, as part of the 0-3 program. In most Pennsylvania counties, it is the intermediate unit that is obligated to identify children who are eligible and provide those children with services. Children may continue to be eligible in the 3-5 program. We help our clients understand and advocate for their child’s right to early intervention. We also counsel our clients through the transition just before their toddler turns 3 from the 0-3 program to the 3-5 early intervention program at age 3. We also help our clients when their child is ready to transition to school-age programming, usually at age 5 or 6.
