The Goals of Early Intervention:
According to the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (1989), the three goals are of early intervention is:
1) Prevention: to hinder the occurrence of a communication disorder or delay by providing Early Intervention (EI) services to at-risk children and their families before an official diagnosis of a communication disorder is made.
2) Remediation: to provide EI services to children and their families who have already been diagnosed with a communication disorder or delay to decrease the long term occurrence or adverse impact that the communication disorder could possibly have on children later in life.
3) Compensation: to provide effective and functional communication strategies or intervention to children and their families with disabilities or impairment that is irreversible to increase the children’s quality of life.
Social and Interpersonal Skills

We can help develop and shape your child's social skills in an individual and group setting while building confidence and self esteem as well.
