Early Intervention Therapy

Research shows that the first six years of a child’s life is the foundation of social and emotional skills, so skilled parenting is instrumental in these vital years.

  • Early intervention involves a series of correct interventions early in your child’s development. Mostly children with learning or behavioural difficulties require this .
  • Early intervention works great when customised for your child’s individual needs.
  • When you work with us, we use a well-established screening tool to detect your child’s needs in the areas like physical well-being, cognitive functioning, social and communicative functioning, as well as emotional functioning.
  • Day One’s early intervention services are meant to give essential support to children and families in the early years.
  • Early intervention is the best way ensure that the development of children with disability is not hampered.

Importance of creating a baseline for a child while he/she is still young

Evidence-based and systematic enhancement involving the entire ecosystem of parent and child

What is a baseline?

A baseline is a starting point for measuring. Indicators are established measures used to determine how well a result has been achieved in a particular area of interest.
Baselines are taken before interventions are started. It allows the team to compare the effects of the interventions or teaching. It is also used to inform instruction and identify areas of need. In its simplest form, it can be used for data and analysis. Baseline data is collected prior to intervention or teaching.

All therapies and services for children with disability need to be family-centric, structured and evidence-based.

When you’re selecting an early intervention service please look for these characteristics.


This implies that the intervention:

  • Involves you and your family members so you can collaborate with professionals and learn how to help your child
  • is adaptable– which means it can take place at home as well as in other locations such as kindergartens and early intervention centres
  • Give your family total support and guidance.


Developmentally appropriate

This implies that the intervention:

  • is specifically designed for your children with their unique disability
  • Is carried out by trained intervention therapists
  • Has a plan customised for your child with provision to reviews it periodically to assess its efficacy
  • Monitors your child’s progress regularly.



This means the intervention:

  • Centres on building required skills
  • Engages strategies to build new skills in your child and ensure they can and use them in different situations
  • Gets your child ready to join a school
  • Helps your child with disability to integrate with typically developing children (ideally of the same age)

Supportive and structured

This implies that the intervention:

  • Assures a sympathetic learning environment – make sure your child is comfortable and well-supported
