Early Intervention of children with disabilities

edited 7. Apr 2022, 16:36 in Family & Children

Early Intervention programme is implemented for children with disabilities and at risk children under the age of 3 years. This covers the sensory motor stimulation and pre-school learning stages. What type of disabilities can be addressed under this programme? Can the intervention address children above 3 years?

Please discuss /share the different activities and practices under early intervention programme.


  • This is exciting. Waiting to see the comments

    According to my opinion, early intervention can address children with any type of disability and at risk children under 3 years of age. Friends what do you think? Please respond.

    I agree with you @Madhabi. From a personal experience, childhood intervention would work for any age to minimize the chances of a disability becoming severe in future should a child get a disability in their later lives

  • I am a big believer in Early Intervention.

    Stretching the age a bit to the age of 5 years. One of the impairments that is addressed is Cerebral palsy. This helps in posture, balance, coordination, and everyday functioning. early intervention is possible until the age of 5 yrs after that it becomes more difficult for the child.

    this can be Occupational therapy, physiotherapy, speech therapy, etc
