EARLY INTERVENTION THERAPY
WHAT IS EARLY INTERVENTION THERAPY?
Early intervention is a play-based program that identifies and provides effective early support and services to infants and toddlers with developmental delays or disabilities and their families who are found eligible through the Tri-Counties Regional Center.
Effective early intervention works to prevent developmental delays from occurring, or to tackle them head-on when they do, before they get worse. It also helps to foster a set of personal strengths and skills that prepare a child for adulthood.
WHAT DOES AN EARLY INTERVENTION SESSION LOOK LIKE?
Early intervention therapy sessions take place in the child's most natural environment (i.e., home, the park, daycare) in order to support the child in the environment(s) that they spend the most time in daily.
Early intervention sessions are play-based and strengths-based, working off of the interests and strengths of the child to provide the best quality therapeutic services and outcomes for the child and family as a whole.
Parents are encouraged to be involved in early intervention therapy sessions as much as possible in order to strengthen and support the parent and child relationship and the family dynamic, as well as to empower parents and families to be a pivotal part of their child's progress and feel confident supporting them with developing the skills they need to be successful.
