Why is Early Intervention Important?


  • During early life the brain is rapidly developing and is shaped by experiences and interactions. Children learn through routines and every day activities.
  • EI/ECSE services enhance language, social and physical development through play-based interventions and parent coaching.
  • Research indicates that early intervention is effective in promoting developmental progress in infants, toddlers and preschoolers with developmental delays or disabilities.
