The 3 Main Benefits of EI

Early Intervention provides assistance and support to empower families of children with developmental delays, special needs, or other concerns.
Early Intervention lays a foundation that will improve the life of the child and offer greater opportunities.
The Most Critical Years
According to research, learning and development are at their highest rate in the preschool years. Some children, due to conditions noticed at birth, special needs, or developmental delays which occur in the early years, risk missing some of the most important learning and developmental milestones. Early intervention helps keep these children on a path to making the most of abilities and skills developed during the early years.
Early intervention services also support the parents and siblings of children with special needs. Families often experience frustration, stress, disappointment, and helplessness. This can both impact the well-being of the family and further affect the development of the special needs child. Early intervention helps build a nurturing and supportive environment for the entire family.
Early intervention is forward looking, even into adulthood. It has been shown that EI therapies do far more than provide for immediate benefits during the developmental years. They significantly increase the child’s ability to integrate in future social environments, including school, community, and ultimately employment.
