Since 1992, the ChildLink Program has served as the single point of entry in Philadelphia for all children from birth to three and their families in need of early intervention services because of a developmental delay or disability. ChildLink also provides early intervention service coordination to eligible children and serves as a point of contact for children three to school age in need of early intervention services. Families and professionals can easily access early intervention services directly by calling 215-731-2110. ChildLink serves all areas of the City and at no cost to parents. Services for eligible children are developed and authorized during an Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP) process by the service coordinator and primarily provided in the family's home and community. Services are provided by a wide range of organizations in areas such as special instruction, physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy. Specialty services are also provided for children who are blind, deaf or have other special needs. Under contract with the City of Philadelphia's Office of Mental Retardation Services, ChildLink is administered by Philadelphia Health Management Corporation, whose mission as a public health organization is to improve the health of the community through outreach, education, research, planning, technical assistance and direct services.
