Supporting Early Intervention with Infants and Toddlers

Supporting Early Intervention with Infants and Toddlers

Early intervention services are designed to help children birth to 36-months-old, with developmental delays or disabilities, acquire fundamental and new skills that usually develop during the first three years of life. Early intervention focuses on the child and the family. It recognizes that the family may need support in understanding and enhancing their child’s development and that they may also have concerns related to everyday experiences and daily routines or events. Research has shown that children who receive early intervention services have improved social and intellectual skills, are more independent, and have families who feel better able to meet their needs. This course will review the research and provide you with ways to support young children with developmental delays or disabilities and to combine support for families with individualized and early intervention services.
