    If you have screening or other information...

    If you conducted a developmental screening of the child, it can be emailed to Bucks County Intermediate Unit #22 or faxed to 267-897-9220. In your message, let us know that the child was previously referred online or by phone. The Early Childhood Services team may be able to use the screening information to determine, with the family, whether an evaluation is needed.
