There is a lot of research that supports early intervention can make a huge difference. But how do you know if you child needs early intervention? Babies and children learn and grow at amazing rates during the first few years of life. If anything is not developing as it should, things can quickly go off track, making it much harder for your child to catch up as more time passes. As a parent it can be difficult to know if your child is developing as they should. Is that typical? Will he grow out of it? Is that just the “terrible twos”? These are questions parents often ask when they notice their child is not meeting a milestone or seems to have more tantrums than they expected. We believe parents know best. By listening to your instincts, seeking out information, and getting early intervention you are doing the absolute best for your child. Don’t let another day pass by without answers.
Autism can now be identified in early childhood, even in infants. However, we are aware of the long waitlists in medical communities for assessments. Delay in assessment means delay in getting the help you need and valuable intervention time can be lost. That is why In STEPPS is committed to connecting quickly with you and your family and providing guidance and assessments in a timely manner. Our licensed clinical psychologist is trained in the ADOS-2 (Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule) and the ADI-R (Autism Diagnostic Interview), as well as other diagnostic tools, and has extensive experience with diagnosing autism in children as early as 12 months.
