Early Treatment Improves Positive Outcomes.

If you’re wondering when it’s the right time to introduce your child to therapeutic intervention, the answer is right now! Extensive research has shown that early intensive behavioral intervention (EIBI) can greatly improve the chances of positive outcomes for children with developmental or behavioral issues. Early intervention can begin shortly after birth and continue until 3 years of age, at which time other services may be necessary. The early services can assist the child’s ability to reach developmental milestones, such as walking or talking or interacting with others. For this reason, it is important to talk to your pediatrician as soon as you notice evidence of a developmental problem or suspect that your child may have an autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

It is important to remember that a child may be eligible for early intervention services whether or not he or she has been diagnosed with an ASD since the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act states that any child at risk of developmental delays may be eligible for treatment. Each state has an early intervention system and, once your child has been evaluated, he or she may qualify for speech therapy or other services.
