If you notice any of these signs in your child, we recommend seeking professionals like us for an evaluation. Our team will help you figure out what’s going on and develop an early intervention plan for your family.
What Is Early Intervention?
Early intervention refers to treatment services focused on evaluating and providing support to children in the early stages of development—infants and toddlers. This includes assessments, different types of therapy, and programs based on the needs of the child and their family.
The goal of early intervention is to strengthen children’s skills to address or prevent challenges and improve their quality of life.
How Can Early Assessment and Intervention Help?
Early intervention starts with an assessment. An assessment is a psychological evaluation performed by licensed psychologists like us to take a deeper look at your child and their abilities. It involves checking your child’s cognitive, executive, and emotional functioning, reviewing their history, and consulting with their family.
An accurate and early assessment can make a big difference in your child’s life and your peace of mind. It will give you a clearer understanding of their symptoms and dictate an intervention program tailored to their needs. The sooner the assessment, the sooner you can start supporting your child to enjoy a happier and healthier future.
Once a plan is in place, a certified therapist can work directly with your child to start treatment. Applied Behavioral Analysis (also known as ABA) is the gold standard intervention for behavioral and learning challenges related to autism and other developmental differences.
ABA focuses on skills training and reinforcement. This may include improving communication and daily functions, learning play and social skills, reducing problematic behaviors, and encouraging positive ones.
Intervention may also involve educating caregivers and collaborating with other community members. As treatment goes on, your child’s therapist will monitor their progress and adjust objectives and processes accordingly. The purpose is to ensure ongoing support to improve and sustain their well-being.
