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:

  • ·  Physical       
  • ·  Sensory
  • ·  Cognitive     
  • ·  Language and Speech
  • ·  Social-emotional
  • ·  Self-help

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