Intervention refers to the treatment which is carried out on a regular basis. An appropriately designed intervention program will greatly improve the outlook for children with speech and language difficulties.
Intervention is most successful when geared toward the child’s specific needs and allows him/her to develop to their fullest potential.
At the start of intervention, a plan is developed with specific goals based on the child’s needs. This plan is discussed with parents and reviewed and modified periodically throughout the treatment process.
Children and their parents are encouraged to be active participants in the intervention process.
Intervention also focuses on creating environments that promotes communication development.
