What is Early Intervention?

​Early Intervention


Positive early experiences are essential prerequisites for later success in school, the workplace, & the community.  Services to young children who have or are at risk for developmental delays have been shown to positively impact outcomes across developmental domains, including health, language & communication, cognitive development, motor development, and social/emotional development.  


Families benefit from early intervention by being able to better meet their children's special needs from an early age and throughout their lives.

​What can Early Intervention do for your child?

The Department of Early Learning has developed a Guiding Concepts of Early Interventions and Please Ask video explaining what Early Interventions can do for your child through early support for infants and toddlers programs throughout Washington state.
