Positive early experiences are essential prerequisites for success in the later years of school, the workplace, and the community. There is a significant need to identify, as early as possible, infants and toddlers in need of early intervention services to ensure that therapy is provided when the developing brain is most capable of change . Families also benefit from early intervention by becoming equipped to meet their child’s special needs from an early age and throughout their lives.
If you have any concerns about your child’s development, please call (02) 4647 3373 to speak to Breanne or to make an appointment.
