Early Intervention Programme
The Early Intervention Programme (EIP) is a specialized comprehensive intervention program that supports infants, toddlers and young children with developmental delays, academic and behavioral difficulties. The program includes kids from birth to 3 years of age.
The Early Intervention program is beneficial for babies born prematurely or who have spent time in the NICU (Neonatal intensive Care Unit) also referred to as High-Risk Infants. Early intervention programs aim at optimizing the child’s development, help the child heal and develop more successfully.
As part of our program, we have a highly enthusiastic and hardworking team of experts such as Pediatric Physical therapists (trained in Neurodevelopmental therapy, hydrotherapy, CME therapy, Suit Therapy, Spider Cage Therapy etc. ) Occupational Therapists, Speech and feeding, behavioral therapists and Therapists performing group counseling sessions to assist children in realizing their full potential.

Who Qualifies for Early Intervention Services?
If parents have concerns with their child’s development, they are urged to contact our Early Intervention program,
Kids may be eligible if they meet the following criteria:
- Have a delayed development both physical and social, physiological, poor understanding, or behavioral problems that could cause a developmental delay
- Have dietary, visual, or auditory problems
- Have difficulty dealing with adults or other children
- Are at risk of developmental delays as a result of specific birth, health, or external factors in the family
We encourage early intervention programs as soon as possible because an Infant’s brain is undergoing a key period of growth and development and the more they are exposed and interact with the environment around them, the more connections (neural) form in the brain. Early intervention programs take advantage of babies’ young brains eagerness to engage and learn as well as adapt.
Every child is different and unique and management must be unique according to the child’s needs and level of delay. Although we know Early intervention will not treat the disorder, it will significantly help to improve functions and delay secondary complications. We recommend you to not wait till symptoms become problematic, see a therapist to augment neuroplasticity and maximize function.
