Early Intervention

How Early Intervention Benefits Children

The first three years of a child’s life play a crucial role in development. We can help to ensure they reach important developmental milestones through play and instructional programs designed by our developmental interventionists and therapists.

When it comes to overall health and development, research clearly indicates the importance of the first three years of life. Early intervention services can have a significant impact on a child’s ability to learn new skills and increase success in school and life. Families benefit from early intervention by being able to better meet their children’s needs from an early age and throughout their lives.

Our team-directed services focus on helping you, as parents or caregivers, understand the special needs of your child and how you can enhance their development through activities designed to be part of your daily routine. We provide services within your child’s natural environment, where he or she lives, learns, and plays. This might include your home, childcare centers, libraries, or early education classrooms.
