Much has changed through medical research over the life of CPL, but one category has stayed much the same.

The notion of early intervention for children with disabilities is not new, but it remains equally relevant today. As a child develops, their senses and their movements contribute to their cognitive development. The lessons learned at this young and crucial stage all combine to encourage a child to grow, and if they are bereft of such contributions, it can serve to stunt their development, compared with their peers.

The best early intervention involves an accurate diagnosis from a paediatrician, and moving forward with steps to tackle the issue. This typically means making use of geared programs intended to directly target the child’s disability. These can involve techniques from occupational therapy, cognitive therapy, and physical therapy, among others.

These methods are geared towards treating difficulties including, but not limited to:

  • Hand-eye coordination
  • Writing
  • Lisping and speech difficulties
  • Reading
  • Dressing
  • Behavioural problems
  • Fussy eating

With the proper diagnosis and treatment, a child has an excellent shot at developing at the same rate as their peers do. At CPL, we can help you to offer your child a chance to stay on the track to success.
