Early Childhood Intervention: Module One – Typical and Atypical Development

Diverse Populations

Children served by early intervention specialists form a very diverse population because every family is unique. At the same time, every family is unique and what could work for one family may not necessarily work for another. This is why, regardless of the known benefits of early childhood intervention, no blanket statements apply to  short- and long-term effects for children and their families.

What has been identified as something that “ works” in early intervention is service provided within a family-centred approach (see full Glossary), where family needs are taken into account. Parents report the immediate and long-term positive effects of family-centred early intervention in their developing child.
