What is Early Intervention?
Sometimes a child can be born with a condition or special need that affects their development. Other times a condition is not apparent at birth, but later parents or doctors begin to wonder if a child's development is appropriate. What happens next?
- To begin, a child's developmental abilities are evaluated.
- Once evaluated, the child can receive the appropriate therapy, or other type of early intervention, he/she needs.
