What is Early Intervention?
Early Intervention consists of services and supports designed to help families of children ages 0-3 who have developmental delays. While all children grow and develop at their own rate, some children can experience delays in their development. Sometimes this can be cause for concern and research shows that the earlier we can intervene when we are first recognizing the delays, the better the outcomes. Early Intervention provides the support and services necessary for young children to grow, develop, and make meaningful progress. High-quality early intervention services can change a child's developmental trajectory and improve outcomes for children, families, and communities.
Who is Eligible?
Children ages 0-3 who have special needs due to a developmental delay or diagnosis such as Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) are eligible to receive Early Intervention services at no cost to the family. An individualized family support plan is developed for families to enhance the child's growth and development.
Early Intervention at Elevated Kids
Early Intervention is implemented in the child's natural setting, usually in the home, and consists of targeting developmentally-appropriate skills with a strong component of parent training and family involvement. Early Intervention targets learning opportunities that are naturally embedded throughout the child and family’s daily routines and geared toward the child’s developmental level to build foundations in the core areas needed to reach developmental milestones. All professionals at Elevated Kids have extensive training and experience in early childhood development, developmental delays, ASD, ABA, and NDBI to provide each child and family with the highest quality and most effective treatment available.
