Early Intervention Programs:

Do you have concerns that your pre-schooler is not talking, moving, playing, or interacting like other children his or her age? Early intervention is a program that can help you with these concerns. It is a free program for families of any income level that provides evaluation of developmental delays and provides parent training in the home or daycare to help address any significant delays that are found. There is no physician or insurance referral needed. If you have concerns about your child, please contact:

For children under age 3: Cumberland/Perry Early Intervention at 717-240-6325
