It can’t be overstated: the earlier a child is diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, the greater short- and long-term positive impact early intervention programs can achieve. Studies have demonstrated that an early intervention program can improve IQ, language ability and social interaction.
By definition and with a diagnosis, early intervention programs can begin as young as 18 months. Early intervention is found in many methodologies, disciplines, programs and educational strategies — and with your child’s diagnosis of strengths and opportunities, early intervention can target overall gain, while focusing on your child’s areas of greatest need.
