From birth to age 5 years, children should reach milestones in how they play, learn, speak and act. Each child grows and changes at their own rate, but some children have delays in their development. Early Intervention can assist families and caregivers to support the child to reach their potential.
If you have a concern regarding you child’s development, you can make a referral to Chester County Infant/Toddler Early Intervention to discuss you child’s development and to have an evaluation completed.
Families, Caregivers, Hospitals, physicians, and specialists may make a referral to the program.
