Early Intervention Services
Ages 18 months to 4 years
Early Intervention Services emphasize learning that is relationship based, and focuses on social and communication skills taught through play. Early joint attention and social reciprocation skills are building blocks that establish learning readiness for children who can then transition into other ABA programming. This is a significant area of need for early learners.
