It is generally accepted that a great deal of brain development occurs during a child’s first three years. Early intervention ideally begins as soon as there is any indication of developmental delay, as much can be done to get a child back onto a typical development track. Communication Matters offers in-home therapy programs for children under the age of three that focuses on building functional communication, social, self-help, and play skills.
Baby Steps: Learn the Signs. Act Early.
Early recognition of developmental disabilities, such as autism, is key for parents and providers.
The CDC realized the impact on families and invested in a campaign to help parents measure their children’s progress by monitoring how they play, learn, speak, and act.
