How important is early intervention to helping 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 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.

Early intervention can help to lessen the impact of raising children with special needs.

In many cases, children with special needs require specialised education that keeps them separate from other children. This can make the child’s socialisation much harder. Early childhood intervention can help alleviate some of the socialisation aspects for the child so they don’t feel left out from their peer groups.
