How Do I Get Early Intervention Help for My Child?
Before services can be provided, an independent evaluation of your child must be completed. To assure impartiality, one agency offers evaluation services while another provides the therapeutic services.
- In Pittsburgh and Allegheny County, call the Alliance for Infants & Toddlers at 412-885-6000 to schedule an evaluation for your child. When scheduling services, be sure to choose TEIS as your child's service provider.
- In Westmoreland County, call Westmoreland WCSI EI Department at 724-837-1808 to schedule an evaluation of your child. When scheduling services, be sure to choose TEIS as your child's service provider.
- In Beaver County, TEIS is not a service provider, but provides evaluation services. To schedule an evaluation for your child, call the Beaver County Direct Services Unit 724-891-2827 and request TEIS to complete your child's initial evaluation.
Childhood evaluations and therapy services are available under the Federal Early Intervention Program for Infants and Toddlers with Disabilities.
Please don’t hesitate to contact TEIS for more information on early intervention services.
