There is an abundance of research that supports the notion of early intervention. However, referrals for early intervention are not always made when there are concerns regarding a young child’s development. The concern arises as this contradicts what research shows: the child’s brain develops at a rapid rate during the first three years of their life. A wait-and-see model is not effective. This paper explores the importance of early intervention, the benefits of early intervention, and effective practices of early intervention to support families and enhance children’s development.
