Early Intervention Therapy

Early Intervention 

Our Early Intervention programme is one designed for young children in need of therapy services. Early intervention is for children who range from birth to 4 years of age who are at risk of developing a disabling condition or have a known condition/diagnosis, or other special needs that may affect their overall development.

 Aims

Therapy can enhance the development of skills in the areas of:

  • gross motor,
  • fine motor,
  • sensory processing,
  • feeding,
  • communication,
  • personal-social,
  • perceptual,
  • self-help,
  • adaptive behaviour

Who can benefit

Our Early programme is  for children with identified disorders (such as cerebral palsy, autism, Down syndrome, behavioral difficulties, sensory processing disorders, etc.), for children currently under diagnostic investigations, children at risk of developmental delay and for children who are typically developing, but may be experiencing a delay in one or more aspects of development.

Content

Standardised testing is performed at the beginning and end with every child.  The emphasis of Early Intervention  is on prevention, developmental facilitation and enrichment in a playful and supportive environment. Parent education and participation in the activities of the early intervention programme are essential components. Parental involvement will take the form of identifying target goals in conjunction with clinicians, and reporting changes to support the aims of their child’s programme.

Programme details

Our intervention strategies follow latest research, and we use of a blend of evidence based approaches  known to produce beneficial effects for the child. Focus of  intervention is aimed at parent and caregiver education/facilitation and allowing the individual child flexibility in terms of choice, play companions and materials, level of challenge, etc., thus capitalizing on the child’s intrinsic motivation.
