Early Intervention is a proactive process where coordinated services are provided to a child as soon as developmental concerns have been identified. These services are usually delivered in the home setting, but can be offered at the daycare or in clinic. Coordinated services will depend on the child’s needs and deficits, which are:
- language delays
- language disorders
- food aversion
- speech delays
- speech disorders
The team may include physical therapists, occupational therapists, audiologists, behavioral therapists, speech therapists and psychologists.
Theraspeech invites to celebrate Better Speech & Hearing Month by focusing on Early Intervention, a key component in addressing speech, language and/or hearing deficits (among others) in young children. It is important that you identify the Red Flags early on to get the appropriate services for your child.
