Early Intervention Is the term used to describe the services and supports that are available to babies and young children with developmental delays and disabilities and their families.
Although children develop at their own pace, most achieve certain milestones – crawling, walking and saying first words at around the same age. When children are not reaching expected milestones and are showing significantly delayed development, parents may worry. Suspecting a “delay” is scary, but there are interventions available.
Treatment may include Speech, Occupational and Physical Therapy and other types of services based on the needs of the child and family.
