What is your success story with Early Intervention?

Raquel - posted on 03/07/2012 ( 1 mom has responded )




I would love to know about moms who have undergone early intervention with their speech delayed toddler, & how has your child improved after being in the program?

My DD is 28 months and is awaiting to be evaluated by a speech pathologist, encouraging stories will be so appreciated!

I've work with children that receive E.I. (not from me but another person comes in to give them the therapy). 99% of children show improvement of some kind. The amount of improvement varies depending on many different factors. The severety of the child's delay at the start of the therapy, the individual child's ability to grasp what he/she is being taught (not all children are the same) and a BIG factor is how much the parent works with their child at home.

E.I. should give you information on what specific issues they are working on with your child, and they should give you activities that you can work on at home with your child. If you work together then you will see the greatest improvement in your kid.
