Early Intervention

Early intervention applies to children of school age or younger who are discovered to have or be at risk of Autism Spectrum Disorder or other special need that may affect their development. Early intervention provides services for children to help lessen the effects of the ASD. Early intervention can be remedial or preventive in nature--remediating existing developmental problems or preventing their occurrence.

Early intervention may focus on the child alone or on the child and the family together. Early intervention programs may be center-based, home-based, or a combination. Services range from identification--that is, hospital or school screening and referral services--to diagnostic and direct intervention programs. Early intervention may begin at any time between birth and school age; however, there are many reasons for it to begin as early as possible.

Bronwyn Sutton Speech Pathologist
Bronwyn values and respects children with autism and understands that while they may struggle with social communication, they have many strengths which means they are interesting and unique. Bronwyn favours understanding the individual rather than adopting a "one size fits all" approach.
