In 1984, PIC began providing services to infants and toddlers ages birth to 3 with disabilities and developmental delays.
PIC provides mandated services by the Individuals with Disabilities Act or IDEA. The services are referred to as Part C of IDEA and are similar to a school district's special education services referred to as Part B.
Early Intervention services are provided in “natural environments” or places that infants and toddlers of all abilities spend their day.
Most services happen in the homes of children and families. We also work in childcare centers and other locations in the community.
