Early Intervention Services in Pennsylvania (Washington County, Greene County & Fayette County)
The Early Intervention (EI) Program offers support and services designed to assist families with infants and toddlers (birth through age three), with special needs, to promote the development of their child.
Pathways of Southwestern PA provides EI services to 500 children residing in Washington County, Greene County and Fayette County. All services are available year round and are provided at no cost to families.
Early Interventionists provide services within the child's natural environment. This typically includes the child's home, child care center, or other community setting. This approach is intended to help the child's caregivers learn ways to support their children within their daily routines and activities. Related services include physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech pathology, vision support, hearing support, nutritional services, and social work services are provided as appropriate.

An Individual Family Service Plan, or IFSP, is developed for each child found eligible through a Multidisciplinary Evaluation, or MDE. Parent participation in all aspects of the program is strongly encouraged.
