FLYERS: Early Intervention Unit

Early intervention is a program started in Feb 2012 to help infants and toddlers who have developmental delays or are at risk for such delays. The program also serves children with diagnosed disabilities and children at risk of developmental delays for other reasons.

The goal of the program is to help children as soon as possible, so that they can reach their full potential. Prime objective of the program is to promote inclusive opportunities for them in the society. Getting help early can make a big difference in a child’s life. The Early Intervention team works with families of children at risk to figure out what services are needed and the best way to provide those services. Parental training and counseling is an integral part of the program. The program caters to children from birth to 4years of age. The timings are 9am to 2pm.There are five children in the programme, one special educators& a caretaker devoted to them. An Occupational Therapist & a Speech Therapist from the Diagnostic &Counseling Clinic also tend to the Unit.
