There is a growing body of research that tells us that intervention is likely to be more effective when it’s provided earlier in life rather than later 1. This is especially so in the first three years of a child’s life. This is because only about 15% of a baby’s brain is actually connected up when they’re born. But, by the time they turn three, most of the remaining 85% of their brain has formed important connections that will take them through their life2. This is why therapy is so important during this crucial period where children’s brains are still under construction.
Early intervention, when done right, can change the child’s developmental path and improve their outcome. This means that they can get more out of life and reach their potential!
