What is Early Intervention?
Using early and intensive therapy, children with autism can learn and develop at a rate that would normally take significantly longer, allowing them to communicate and interact better. Utilizing Early Intervention allows for a better chance at changing or enhancing brain development, as negative behaviors can be corrected before becoming issues.
Many children begin early intervention ABA therapy around 18-30 months old, as the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends all children between 18-24m receive autism screenings. Children with autism who receive early intervention therapy have been noted to have a better chance of building pivotal developmental skills.
