What is Preschool Early Intervention?
The Preschool Early Intervention Program of Schuylkill County Intermediate Unit 29 is a public special education service provided to children ages 3 to 5 living in one of our counties 12 school districts and who are experiencing a delay in development.
SCIU is made aware of a child through a referral from a person who has regular contact with the child-a parent, day care teacher, physician, or other professional. Once a referral is received, a child is screened to determine if an evaluation should be conducted. An evaluation tests several developmental areas. If a child is eligible, he or she will receive appropriate educational services. These services are provided at no cost to the family through federal and state funds.
