Early Intervention

 
Early Treatment is the golden rule
 
Early Intervention is defined as an intervention undertaker to influence the development and learning of young children (0-6 years of age) with, or at risk of developing, disabilities or other developmental delays.
A developmental delay means that a child is behind in some areas of development including:
  • Physical: gross, fine motor 

  • Cognition: problem solving, visual perception, sequencing, etc.

  • Communication: how the child understands what is said and how the child uses sounds, words, or gestures to let others know what he/she wants.

  • Social/emotional: behavioral difficulties, difficulties with social interactions, etc.

  • Adaptive Development: self-help, including feeding and dressing skills.
