Importance of early intervention

Early intervention is critical for laying down the foundations of development. It is like feeding the roots of a tree. Every part of development is going to be a platform for your child to learn. Everything they do in those early years between say 0 to 5, 0 to 6 as part of the developmental process are going to be skills and abilities that they will build upon in their learning years. So it is critical to have early intervention in order for their not to be a developmental gap, and therefore not learning challenge later on.
