What is early intervention?
Early intervention is a system of coordinated services that promotes the child the child’s age-appropriate growth and development and supports families during the critical early years. Early intervention services to eligible children and families are federally mandated through the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA). Early intervention services are again designed to enhance a child’s development during the first few years of life 0-2 year 11 months. It is also intended to support families and caregivers in developing competence and confidence to help their child learn and grow to their full potential.
Early Intervention and Development:
Every child is unique, growing and developing at his or her own rate. Differences between children of the same age are usually nothing to worry about. However, for one child in 10, the differences can be related to a developmental delay. The sooner these delays are identified, the quicker children may be able to catch up to their peers.
Identifying these delays early is also important because the most critical time for brain development is before the age of three. The brain develops in an experience dependent process. If certain experiences are not triggered, the pathways in the brain relating to this experience will not be activated. If these pathways are not activated, they will be eliminated.
