Early Intervention focuses on children from infancy to kindergarten age with special needs affecting their development. The purpose of early intervention is to take advantage of these critical years in a child’s development. Our early intervention program aims to help your child in reaching goals created specifically for their needs to gain developmentally appropriate language and learning skills. Early intervention programs prepare your child for the transition to school-based learning with the objective of entering into the least restrictive environment possible.
Upon completion of an initial assessment, learning objectives are selected based on your child’s current level of ability. Skills are identified through a variety of skills assessments, including:
- Assessment of Basic Learning and Language Skills – Revised (ABLLS-R)
- Verbal Behavior Milestones Assessment and Placement Program (VB-MAPP)
- CABAS International Curriculum and Inventory of Repertoires for Children from Pre-School through Kindergarten — C-PIRK
- Assessment of Functional Living Skills — (AFLS)
- Infant/Toddler Sensory Profile – 2
- Peabody Developmental Motor Scales, 2nd edition (PDMS-2).
Each day, children receive comprehensive, multidisciplinary services consisting of individual ABA services, art therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, group speech/circle time, and feeding therapy as needed.
