Why early intervention is important for children with Developmental Delays

It is only natural that parents have a natural understanding about the development of their child; from rolling over, then walking and to saying the first word. There are the traditional developmental milestones that everyone associates with a child’s growth.

However, what if things don’t go as expected?

If you think or feel that your child isn’t showing the developmental signs like its peers, it is really important that you search for intervention programs for your child is really essential.

 

There are studies that show the importance of early interventions in correcting the developmental cycle of children with developmental delays.

 

The Developing Child Center at Harvard University emphasizes the importance of early interventions established through years of various researches conducted in the field. During the early stages of development of a child, the brain, in its developing stage, is more receptible and flexible to develop new and fresh neural circuits to facilitate the basic motor, language and cognitive skills.

 

As a result, the need for the child to undergo institutionalization and special education naturally decreases, which in turn helps to reduce the economic and social burden of the family and develop the child as a more contributing and viable adults in future.

 

Even though early intervention is one of the best ways to help develop the child to be a better adult than otherwise, it has to be carefully done. The child must be given the required training and support from only those who are qualified to do so. The best entity to get the help from is the governmental bodies that are established to make interventions to these aspects.

 

Even though such governmental bodies can help you drive better development in your child through better intervention, as parents you must be able to create conducive environment at home which favors the development of the child.

What People Say

Prayatna clinic is class apart in terms of the child oriented therapies accorded over here. Each therapist takes personal care of the needs of the children and offer palliative cure that starts showing results within few days. I have not come across such clinics across India. The infrastructural support and resource base particularly the brain gym etc. are world class. Children also enjoy learning therapies over here due to the motivating atmosphere. Rehabilitation process is faster. Prayatna is really doing a stellar job.

Vineesh S

I have never had such a pleasant therapeutic experience as I have enjoyed in Praytana clinic. The ambience does not have that medical feeling to it. Therapists are always willing to walk the extra mile to make the process easier. The simple manner in which the therapies are offered is really hard to believe without experiencing at a personal level. They also prescribe therapies to be practised at home so that idleness does not interfere with the effect. Keep up the good job.

It was not long since I started seeing a positive change sweeping the life of my only child who required sensory integration therapy. At first, I was hesitating to go to Praytana and thought it to be like any other clinic with lofty claims but with no substance. But, a rude but pleasant shock awaited me as I could see the therapies work wonder for my child. He was no longer the same old kid seeking vents to express his pent-up emotions. Hats off to Prayatna.

My son has been suffering from autistic syndrome and was not able to interact intuitively with his peers. The rehabilitative care offered at Prayatna was life-changing experience for me. Changes in the behavioural patterns of my son started becoming evident. His actions are now more agile and he no longer starts feeling uneasy in the company of others. Prayatna has pulled off the trick for my son. I would candidly recommend the clinic to all parents who want their children to take control of their lives.
