PA Early Intervention Newsletter - Fall 2012

"When my beautiful daughter Chloe was born in 2003, with a diagnosis of Down syndrome, I rapidly learned how important it is to collaborate and network with professionals and families to get the best possible Early Intervention foundation for a lifetime of success. That collaboration effort has led to Chloe being fully included in her neighborhood school and reading at grade level."

The Early Intervention/Early Childhood Education Foundation for Success

"When Chloe finished birth - age 3 Early Intervention she was extremely prepared and rooted to start preschool at her neighborhood program. Chloe was reading at age 3, and she finished preschool with a complete and solid foundation to begin Kindergarten in her neighborhood school. When Chloe started Kindergarten at age 5, the return on investment was immediate because of her school placement and lack of need for an approved private school. Chloe recently began 4th grade reading at a 4th grade level, and she truly has planted more positive seeds in 9 years than most people do in a lifetime."
