”Pittsburgh Public School’s Early Intervention Program has utilized Healthy Child services for several years. As a result of these exemplary services, medically fragile preschoolers are now able to successfully attend preschool in a typical classroom setting; making their transition into kindergarten smoother and less stressful for the family and child.”
