PathWays Provides Early Intervention Therapy

PathWays of Southwestern Pennsylvania has over 50 years of experience bringing Early Intervention services to children in Fayette, Greene, Washington and Westmoreland counties. Our free, high-quality services are designed to help families with children who have developmental delays or disabilities.

Early Intervention builds upon the natural learning that occurs during a child’s important first years. It is a process that promotes collaboration among parents, service providers, and others who are significantly involved with your child. EI is individualized and provides supports to the child and family both in the home and the community. It can also link families to a variety of community services and supports.

The therapies we offer through Early Intervention are:

Special instruction – we provide strategies to assist your child with key developmental skills, such as problem solving, while working to increase your child’s ability to think and communicate.

Physical therapy – we focus on large muscle development that will assist your child in learning how to roll over, sit, crawl and eventually walk.

Occupational therapy – we focus on small muscle development, helping your child learn how to reach grasp and play.

Speech therapy – we help to build an early foundation for language development and communication.

Hearing and vision therapy – certified teachers of the deaf, heard of hearing, and visually impaired are available to help your child work toward independence.

Nutrition therapy – registered dietitians address feeding issues, dietary intake and offer consultation for caregivers regarding special dietary needs.

Your child may be eligible for Early Intervention services if they have been diagnosed with a developmental delay and are between the ages of birth and three years old. For more information, or to schedule an Early Intervention evaluation, contact your local service coordination office.
