Services for Children

Via Early Intervention

Early Intervention therapists work with infants and toddlers in their homes, daycare facilities and communities to address delays and provide age-appropriate therapies.  Caregivers are included in the teaching process so therapy can continue across the child’s daily routines.  Early Intervention services are funded by the PA Department of Human Services.

Services for Young Adults

Teen Experience

Teen Experience, held during summer and winter breaks from school, includes job shadowing, career counseling, volunteering, recreational and team-building activities.  With the help of our staff, teens develop life skills to plan their futures and look ahead to what’s next after graduation.

School-to-Work Transition Services

Via works with students, in partnership with their school districts and the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation, to create a personalized employment plan and explore careers of interest.  Pre-Employment Transition Services are also available under this service, funded through the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation.

How to get involved

COVID-19

COVID-19 UPDATE:

To comply with Governor Wolf’s mandate that non-essential businesses be closed and with guidance from the PA Office of Developmental Programs (ODP), that funds many of our programs, Small Group Employment, many Community Employment Services, Creative Expressions Adult Training Facility and Prevocational Workshop are closed for participants until the mandate is lifted. 

However, ODP has determined that home and community-based services are considered life-sustaining and are exempt from the Governor’s directive asking for the closure of all non-essential businesses.  Therefore, Via will provide limited Community Participation supports, In-Home services and Behavioral Support services.  As we learn more from ODP, coordinators will reach out to participants about services that are available.  We are reaching out to Via staff now to determine who can provide these services. 

Coordinators are working remotely and are available by email or phone to answer your questions.  Please contact your coordinator by email or phone if you need anything or email Via@ViaNet.org.
