How early childhood intervention helps children

Early childhood intervention is an educational and support system for young children who have developmental delays or disabilities. It also supports children who may have been victims of abuse or neglect.

Early childhood Intervention targets children from birth to the age of three as this is the window when the foundation of key skills are learned. This allows parents and educators to redirect the child’s mind earlier towards skills such as language and social interaction. It will redirect children in learning how to communicate, participate and engage with their peers, society and family. By the time the child enters school, they have a better chance at being developmentally on par with their peers, or in some cases, even more advanced.

Research and practice have proven that Early Intervention produces immediate and long-term benefits for children with disabilities, their family and society.

Early childhood intervention isn’t just to the benefit of the child. It is also critical for the entire family. During this period, the family will also be learning about how to best support the child, meet their needs, and deal positively with any delays or learning disabilities.
