Early Intervention

Early Intervention

The goal of early intervention is to prevent or improve the effects of the child’s disability before entry into school. These services may be delivered in a classroom setting, at home, or a combination of both. The duration of the program, in terms of hours per week, varies according to the individual need of the child and his/her family.

Early Intervention Programs are provided for children of ages three to five years. The need for early intervention services must be in one of the following areas:

-Language and Speech

Services must be provided by qualified personnel. The Beaver Valley Intermediate Unit provides early intervention for the children in the Rochester Area School District.
