What Is Early Intervention? 

According to the CDC,  Early intervention:

  • Is the term used to describe services and support that help babies and toddlers (from birth to 3 years of age in most states/territories) with developmental delays or disabilities and their families.

  • May include occupational therapy, speech therapy, physical therapy, and other types of services based on the needs of the child and family.

  • Can have a significant impact on a child’s ability to learn new skills and increase their success in school and life.

  • Programs are available in every state and territory. These services are provided for free or at a reduced cost for any child who meets the state’s criteria for developmental delay  (In Georgia- the program in Babies Cant Wait). 

 

Early Intervention is likely to be more effective when it is provided earlier in life rather than later.

The connections in a baby’s brain are most adaptable in the first three years of life. These connections, also called neural circuits, are the foundation for learning, behavior, and health. Over time, these connections become harder to change.

Occupational Therapy  (Ages 0-18) 


Occupational Therapy provides children the skills they need to achieve developmental milestones and family goals within their environment. Often through play, your child may work on improving their balance, strength, ability to grasp, self care and dressing skills, coloring, sensory skills and regulation, visual perceptual skills, handwriting, social skills, and attention. Mastery of these skills are stepping stones that allow your child to increase their independent and confidence in any settings. Thus, they can utilize newfound skills to take on any challenge!
