Early Intervention Services

BARC Developmental Services provides early intervention for infants, toddlers and preschoolers who are referred by either the family’s local base service unit (birth to three) or the Bucks County Intermediate Unit (ages three through five), in home, community and classroom based programs.

Outcomes are individual to the child and family and are developed through assessment, discussion, planning, and ongoing communication. Strategies are developed to encourage progress and development in areas that may include motor development, communication skills, cognition and problem solving, play skills and/or socialization.

Services are determined by a team that supports the child and the family through individualized plans that include measurable outcomes, strategies and specially designed instruction.

BARC Developmental Services Early Intervention Philosophy

At BARC Developmental Services the philosophy of Early Intervention evolves from a developmental or educational model, intended to empower families to facilitate their child’s growth and development. Early Intervention services are best provided through a collaborative or team effort between family, community, special instructors/teachers and therapists.

We see the family as the leader of this team, which enables us to develop strategies that suit the individual styles, customs and routines of those whom we support. Early Intervention at BARC Developmental Services provides services to children with a wide range of special needs.

Every child is unique and has an individual style and rate of learning. We accept a child where he or she presently interacts developmentally and promote a positive approach to skill development by building on existing strengths.

Early Intervention Services include:

Specialized classrooms for preschoolers referred by the Bucks County Intermediate Unit at our Friendship Circle location in Croydon, Bucks County.

Home and community based supports and services for infants and toddlers referred by Bucks County Base Service Units.
