Early Intervention

Early intervention is a system of services that children aged from 0-6 years, with a particular focus on 0-3 years.  Early intervention focuses on helping babies and young children to learn the basic and brand-new skills that typically develop during the first years of life, such as:

  • Physical (reaching, rolling, crawling, and walking);
  • Cognitive (thinking, learning, solving problems);
  • Communication (talking, listening, understanding);
  • social/emotional (playing, feeling secure and happy); and
  • self-help (eating, dressing)

Examples of early intervention services: If an infant or toddler has a disability or a developmental delay in one or more of these areas, that child may need early intervention services, which will be developed in the 10 selected regions by UAFA.
