Early Intervention



Studies across disciplines reveal that a child’s early development sets the stage for  success in life. Numerous studies have shown that intensive early intervention can reduce the long term cost and the need for special education services  later in life.


 Understanding that the family is the center of the intervention, AAI’s interdisciplinary approach supports IDEA’s vision, which includes the Six Foundational Principles:


1.  Practices shall be family-centered
2.  Practices shall be relationship-based
3.  Practices shall be culturally responsive
4.  Practices shall be collaborative and interdisciplinary
5.  Practices shall be responsive to child developmental risk and protective factors
6.  Practices shall adhere to professional and ethical standards
