Autism Early Intervention

Early Intervention helps develop independence and academic skill – in children with AUTISM (ASD)

Autism refers to a broad range of conditions characterized by challenges with speech/ language delays, challenges with social skills, repetitive and restrictive behaviors. 

Because Autism is a spectrum disorder no two children diagnosed will have the exact same challenges. 

But, whilst every child with autism has their own distinct set of strengths and challenges, they all struggle with communication.  They all struggle to some degree with integration into groups or public places and learning new concepts can be extremely difficult for a variety of reasons.

Early Intervention helps develop independence and academic skills because is “comes between” the negative effects of the development delay and the natural develop process of the child.  Autism Early Intervention helps minimize the impact of the child’s autism on the child’s future development. Professionals across the globe all agree that children with Autism who receive specialized intervention early in life are more likely to advance than those without such help.
