Berks County Intermediate Unit
BCIU - Early Intervention
Preschool Early Intervention is a parent/caregiver training model program that provides public school special education services and supports for preschool children with special needs. If a child is found eligible for services, an Individualized Education Program is developed to provide support for the child's participation in typical preschool activities. Supports include training and consultation for the staff working with the child in their early learning program, special instruction, and related therapies. The program provides the supports to enable a child to attend an early learning program, but does not provide the early learning program unless the child's needs can only be met in a preschool special education environment.
