What Do I Do To Begin Early Intervention Therapy
Work with an in-home early intervention therapist
Early intervention begins with a comprehensive evaluation by an in-home early intervention therapist from Solace to identify a child’s needs and create an individualized plan for your child. Research reveals that early intervention services can considerably mitigate the effects of developmental delays. Physical, occupational, and speech therapy services may be necessary in order to promote motor skills, speech, and language development to better assist children for success in their school aged years. Our pediatric clinicians have extensive experience working with IFSP (Individualized Family Service Plan), physicians, educators, service coordinators, and families together to provide an individualized Plan of Care for every child to meet evidence based goals – as well as your family’s values, culture, and desires. In-home pediatric physical, occupational and speech therapy allows your child’s life and routine to be uninterrupted. Our occupational (OT), physical (PT) and speech (SLP) therapists work together to help you understand your child’s development and provide specific training to assist you in addressing areas of delay. Contact our office to schedule an evaluation.
Finding an In-Home Early Intervention Therapist for My Child: Getting Access to Resources in Colorado
We partner with the state Child Find Early Intervention program to provide therapy services to children that meet the State criteria. Early intervention is a collection of support and therapy services provided to children (from birth to 6 years old who have disabilities, or who are at risk of developing them) the help they need to succeed as they grow. Federal, state, and local dollars are funded for early intervention programs for those who qualify. The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) mandates that early intervention programs provide services in the natural environment and within naturally occurring routines and activities of the family’s day. We also accept Medicaid and most Insurance companies if your child does not meet the qualifications to receive services through their community center boards (CCB).
Pediatric therapy with an in-home early intervention therapist allows your child to receive speech/language, occupational and physical therapy, and nursing services in the comfort of their own home, or in a natural setting, such as their pre-school or school. We provide the care your family needs, where you need it. Our goal is to provide quality early intervention therapy in Colorado Springs, Denver, and the surrounding area to children that will help them reach their full potential with minimal disruption to their daily activities and lives. We see children from birth who are at risk for, or have documented developmental delays.
Natural development varies for each individual child but broad milestones are a good guideline. These milestones are outlined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and can be helpful in understanding what to expect, so that any concerns can be brought up with your child’s physician.
Here at Solace, we understand that you know your child best. If you have any concerns about the way they play, speak, learn, act, or move, speak with your child’s doctor. Screening your child regularly using standardized, validated tools at the ages of 9, 18, and 24 or 30 months (and for autism at 18 and 24 months – or whenever you or a provider has a concern) is recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics. Speak with your doctor about these screenings, and if either you or a provider believes there might be a delay, reach out to our team and refer your child for an evaluation with a pediatric therapist.
