Early Intervention Makes a Big Difference!

“Children are like tiny flowers; they are varied and need care, but each is beautiful alone and

glorious when seen in the community of peers.”

-- Friedrich Frobel

Friedrich Frobel was one of the most influential founders of kindergartens, and he coined the name in 1840.

The early childhood years are important for all children, but for the child who has special needs, these years are especially critical. When the parent misses out on the early years of learning and intervention, it affects a child's learning and development.

Early intervention is the foundation for the children and families. If we get those early years right then the strong foundation is laid for the future. It is like feeding the roots of the tree. Early detection and intervention make a lot of difference in a child's life and functioning. It may also prevent or reduce the need for special help later. The first five years are the crucial years for the


Many conditions can be alleviated, other problems can be overcome to a large extent, and some problems can be managed so that the child can live a better life.

From birth to age 3, children develop their sensory experiences like different sounds, smells, objects, tastes etc. After 3, the brain starts responding to new learning experiences. Language, vision and emotions continue to develop. Also, various skills like drawing, playing an instrument, picking up a sport etc., are easy to be learned during this stage. Social interaction through play is also important.

As soon as you discover that your child has a delay in any area of development whether it be in

the gross motor skill like the ability to walk, run, climb or fine motor skill area like difficulty in holding the pencil, writing or in the social skill areas which is their ability to play with others.

Whatever area the delay is it is very important to seek professional help. The professionals can assess what delays your child may have and refer you to the appropriate therapist who can then evaluate that domain of development and then treat those specific delays. You are your child’s

best teacher. Early intervention is the greatest gift that you can give it to your child. No matter where you live, you will find professionals to help you. Where there is a will, there is a way.

Very informative post

Agreed , its always best to approach the therapist than asking people. I see in many online forum where moms ask "my 2 plus year old kid doesn't talk" and many will answer its okay mine spoke at 4 yrs.
