What is it?

Early intervention is a therapeutic educational process that promotes the harmonious development of a child by stimulating areas that are totally or partially altered by conditions of congenital or acquired origin, moderating its effects, and working preventively in children with high biological risk, socio-environmental and mixed.

The objective of early intervention, or early stimulation, is to enhance and develop children's brain functions intellectually as well as socially, physically, and emotionally through repetitive games and exercises.

Why is it so important to start at an early age?

Early stimulation is a fundamental part of the development of the first three years of life, as it will enhance physical, cognitive, sensory, and affective abilities depending on the areas that have difficulty. It lays the foundation to facilitate the harmonious and healthy growth of the child by fixing their attention and arousing interest in everything that surrounds them. In addition, it promotes the physical, mental, and social capacities of the child, prevents psychological, motor and cognitive alterations, and detects problems of development disorders or future learning problems.

Early intervention bonds the whole family with the children by providing support and strategies to improve the communication needs of the children. This helps their family incorporate them into the day to day, providing many opportunities for them to learn.

For this reason, it is of the utmost importance that they attend school since the development of communication lays the foundation for literacy and influences future school performance. Having a good command of language goes together with the ability to imagine and create new ideas. The systematic and sequential repetition of stimuli and scientifically based activities reinforce the neural areas of children.

Early intervention must be taught in a playful and functional way considering all aspects of the child - biological, psychological, social, and educational, while working all areas of development - motor, cognitive, communicative, and personal autonomy.

Play is a child's first language. Through playful activity, children interact with objects, develop their senses, acquire skills, express fantasies, feelings, interact with other people, acquire behavior patterns, imitate, etc. Through play they internalize the surrounding reality and express their world inside. Playing helps to understand the child and observe his or her physical and mental evolution.
