Early Intervention Services 

All children grow and develop in unique ways. Some experience delays in their development. ’Early Intervention’ refers to the services available to families with children under the age of three who are: 

  • not developing as expected
  • have a medical condition that can delay normal development
  • are for any other reason experiencing a developmental delay

Human Services funds agencies to provide a variety of early intervention services that benefit children and their families. If you have concerns about your child’s development you qualify to meet with a Family Resources Coordinator. 


Make a Referral

We can help you get connected to the services that will best meet the needs of your child and family. Referrals can be made online, emailing pcfrc@piercecountywa.gov or faxing 253-798-2818.
