Early Intervention Program is a combination of different services, support and therapies offered to children who have special needs or are showing early signs of developmental issues. It aims to provide assistance as early as possible to help these children overcome or reduce the effects of their developmental issues in the future. This program focuses on children who are diagnosed with autism, learning disorders, speech delays or learning disorders. It usually covers these important aspects:

  1. Early Diagnosis: This program aims to provide early assessments and diagnosis to catch developmental issues at an early age.
  2. Intervention and Therapy: Involves many therapies and services such as speech therapy, occupational therapy, sensory therapy and others customized to the needs of the child.
  3. Family Education & Support: Ensure that the family is given the correct information, support and training to help them understand and assist with their child's development safely at home.
  4. Cooperation Between Professionals: Different health experts, therapists and educators, along with the parents will prepare a specialized program that is suitable and holistic for the child.
  5. Emphasizing Growth: To improve the day to day skills, abilities and the child's life quality through effective interventions.

Early Intervention is extremely important as interventions and assistance at an early age is able to help them have long term positive effects on their symptoms and skills later in life. The period for the best effectiveness is around the preschool age, as early as 2-3 years old. At this time, their brains are still developing and are more "changeable" than at later ages, therefore these treatments have a higher chance at being effective long term. At FIT-IN, we believe that early interventions give your child the best start to life possible, along with giving them the best chance to develop to their fullest potential. Recent guidelines suggest starting this program as soon as autism spectrum disorder is diagnosed or seriously suspected.
