My Child Needs EI?
Deciding on the best support for your child can be overwhelming. That's why we're here to walk you through each step. EI professionals specialize in planning the best care for your child, making the process easy, direct, and at no cost to you.
Call one of four service coordination offices below, depending on your county of residence. Explain that you would like to set up an Early Intervention evaluation.
Fayette County Behavioral Health Administration
215 Jacob Murphy Lane Uniontown, PA 15401
Greene County Human Services
19 S. Washington Street 3rd Floor, Fort Jackson Building Waynesburg, PA 15370
Washington County Behavioral Health and Developmental Services
100 West Beau Street, Suite 302 Washington, PA 15301
Westmoreland Case Management and Supports, Inc.
770 East Pittsburgh Street Greensburg, PA 15601
Your service coordinator will contact you to schedule a multidisciplinary evaluation for your child. This evaluation will determine if your child needs EI, as well as the specific services necessary to aid their development.
An evaluation can be held at your own home or through teletherapy if you wish, depending on the evaluation team. Your service coordinator will then walk you through the evaluation process.
If your Service Coordinator finds that your child needs Early Intervention services, they will help you create an Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP). An IFSP is a unique plan that lays out the best services for you and your child, the frequency and duration of those services, and how to move forward in your child's development.
When choosing a provider for these services, choose PathWays. We offer the following services for children from birth to age 3 at no cost:
