Early Intervention

Early intervention services offered at Fundamental Therapy Solutions include a variety of specialized therapeutic and educational services designed to meet the individual needs of young children who have known disabilities, delays in development, or are deemed to be at risk for developing disabilities or delays.  The importance of identifying developmental delays and learning problems early cannot be overstated.  Research has consistently shown that early intervention for a variety of childhood issues results in the best long-term outcomes.  Identifying and correcting childhood problems early ensures that children don't fall further behind their peers as they get older.  However, intervening early when problems appear in older children is also important.  Regardless of when problems are identified, the prompt provision of appropriate intervention services minimizes long term negative consequences.

early intervention Common issues requiring early intervention in younger children may include physical needs (gross and fine motor skills), cognitive development needs (thinking, learning, solving problems); communication needs (talking, listening, understanding, expressing thoughts); social/emotional/behavioral needs (playing, feeling safe and happy, interacting with others, behaving appropriately); and self help skills (eating, dressing, toileting).  Fundamental Therapy Solutions has professionals who are trained in each of the above areas who can conduct comprehensive evaluations and offer recommendations and/or therapeutic services designed to address each child's specific needs.

Children may exhibit a wide variety of behaviors which may indicate an underlying difficulty or disability.  It is important not to jump to conclusions and to seek a professional opinion if you think that your child may have delays in developmental milestones or academic skills.  A child's age, developmental level and environmental influences must be kept in mind when determining if he or she has developmental delays or disabilities.  If you think your child may have a disability or may be struggling with problems of some kind, qualified professionals at Fundamental Therapy Solutions are available to evaluate your child and guide you towards appropriate interventions.  The earlier interventions can be provided to children in need, the better the outcome.
