How early should we start intervention?


To put it simply, intervention should start as early as possible. When parents begin to notice their child not developing as expected and they voice these concerns, a common response is “They’ll grow out of it, just wait”. Unfortunately, the longer you wait the more difficulty you and your child may have. If you are concerned about your child’s development, whether its their communication, social skills or behaviours, you should begin seeking information and assistance as soon as you can.
