Children are eligible for EI if they are under three years of age and have a disability or developmental delay. Children over the age of 3 may be eligible for the 3-5 “school age” early intervention program available in their county of residence.

All children referred are to receive a multidisciplinary evaluation to determine service eligibility. PA definition of development delay means that a child has not attained certain milestones expected for that age.
Per state regulation, the child must show a 25% delay in any tested areas to qualify.

The evaluation team or a team member will discuss their findings with you. If your child is eligible, an Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP) is developed.

Your family’s IFSP will include the child’s present level of functioning, the family’s resources, priorities, and concerns related to the child’s development. As well as early intervention services needed to meet your child and family’s needs, location of service, outcome/goals expected from services, strategies, and activities that will lead to the outcomes.

Sensory play is a type of play that engages one or more of the five senses: touch, sight, hearing, taste, and smell. It is an interactive and hands-on approach to learning and exploration, often used in early childhood education and therapy. Sensory play activities are designed to stimulate sensory experiences, promote cognitive development, and enhance a child’s understanding of the world around them.
Kidology is proud to offer 2 state of the art sensory play gyms where we offer Co-Treat, OT and PT; check out our Instagram @kidologyplayspaces to learn more!

Audiology, family training, occupational therapy, physical therapy, psychological services, social work services, special instruction, speech-language therapy, vision services, behavioral therapy, ABA, life skills, personal care assistance, social interaction, and others.

All services can be provided at home and community-based (family or relative’s home, child care center, family daycare, or other places parents go with their children). Facility or center base me visits (where the service provider works), parent-child groups (can happen anywhere in the community), and group developmental intervention (two or more children who are eligible).

Early intervention services are provided at no cost to families. The state waiver programs through OCDEL provide funding that is used to pay for services in Pennsylvania. When your child ages out after 5, or if you prefer to come privately prior to 5, Kidology offers services covered by insurance or out-of-pocket pay in order to cover therapy costs.

A transition plan must be developed for every child leaving early intervention. Your service coordinator will incorporate the transition plan into your IFSP. Your child will be evaluated to assess their present abilities and needs. Based on the results, the continuing county program for 3 to 5-year-olds decides if your child is eligible to receive special education services or programs. If your child is eligible, an individualized education plan, also known as an IEP, is developed based on results.
You may also inquire with Kidology for our private clinic, which can be billed through your insurance.

An IEP is an individualized education plan. This is a planner program developed to ensure that a child who has a disability identified under the law and is attending an elementary or secondary educational institution receives specialized instruction and related services. This is the next step after the child finishes an EI program and has an IFSP.
