Early and intensive intervention is one of the most powerful tools we have to combat developmental disorders, but developmental issues are frequently identified much later than they should be, often because a “wait and see” approach is recommended during early childhood. The power of early intervention as one of the key tools to support your child’s development will be discussed. Developmental milestones are reviewed along with common patterns of development. Development may occur unevenly across skill areas and spurts in skill building are common, but regression, or loss of skills, is not. The higher risk of developmental issues in boys also will be discussed.
