"As the parent of an older child with developmental disabilities, I
always want to encourage parents with children under the age of 3 that
are showing any signs of developmental issues to aggressively seek
early intervention services. Whether a child has a diagnosis or is
simply at risk of delays, research shows that early intervention can
significantly impact the child and the family by providing knowledge,
practical strategies, and encouragement that will result in beneficial
outcomes. Looking back on my own child’s life, I can clearly see that
the early intervention program we participated in was tremendously
helpful to her…and to me. I learned about developmental stages, ways to
help my child in her everyday life, how to measure her progress, and
how important my role was in her struggle to make gains. The years
before age three present important opportunities for us to make a
difference in the long-term picture of our children's futures – don’t
miss the chance to offer your child all you can!"
