How do I know if my Child is eligible?
Children from birth to age 3 who reside in Westmoreland County and have special needs due to developmental delays or disabilities are eligible to receive Early Intervention services from the Westmoreland County Early Intervention Program. Any parent, caretaker, educator, or medical personnel who have a concern about a child’s development can request an evaluation of the child to determine eligibility for EI services.

A multi-disciplinary team of professionals will meet with the child and family to conduct the evaluation in a setting familiar to the child. All areas of development will be evaluated by the team: physical development, including vision and hearing; cognitive development; communication; social/emotional development; and adaptive development

To qualify to receive on-going services from the EI Program, the child must have:

- A 25% delay in one or more areas of development or
- Have a known physical or mental condition likely to result in a developmental delay
