Early Learning

Addressing learning obstacles head-on. Reaching over 10,000 children each year, our early intervention services help children with autism and other differing abilities interrupt delays and accelerate learning. Our work is especially relevant now, as autism spectrum disorder is the fastest-growing developmental issue facing families today.

Early impact. Wide reach.

Early Intervention Services

Early intervention is the process of assessing and providing support and services for young children with developmental delays or disabilities, and their families, in order to promote development and well-being. Quality early intervention services can minimize the delays and challenges that some young learners experience; research show that the earlier a child receives services, the better the outcome. Early intervention services are evidence-based and proven by science to teach young children new behaviors or skills to improve communication and social skills. If you have a developmental concern about your child, please call us to schedule a multidisciplinary evaluation for your child and family. We are here to help.
