How do I access Early Intervention Services?

 

Anyone interested in making a referral or a general inquiry about early intervention for a child less than 33 months of age should contact the CMSU office at (570) 275-6080 or 1-800-451-9720. Contact can also be made by emailing cmsudss@cmsu.org. Referrals can also be made by calling CONNECT (statewide directory for early intervention) at 1-800-692-7288. For children who live in counties outside of CMSU, the referral must be made to CONNECT. For children within 45 days of turning 3, the caller may contact Central Susquehanna Intermediate Unit at (570) 523-1155, extension 2229 with the referral information.

When making a referral, you will be asked to provide basic information about the child. This information will include:
• Name of child
• Parents’/legal guardian’s name
• Address including county of residence
• Date of birth
• Living situation (Does the child live with parents, grandparents, other relatives or is in foster care? If child is in foster care, additional contact information will be needed.)
• Reason for referral - What concerns you about the child's development?
• Review of any completed developmental evaluations - Was the child recently evaluated? Does the child currently receive early intervention services? Are there other agencies involed?



All information provided remains confidential. Service Coordinators are bound by several confidentiality laws including HIPAA, Families Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and Mental Health Mental Retardation policy.
