Helping Infants and Toddlers Reach Developmental Milestones

Taking advantage of the early years
The brain sciences tell us that children’s brains have the most “plasticity” in the first years of life, meaning they’re more adaptable to change through learning and experience. Your child’s brain, during this time period, forms thousands of synaptic connections between neurons—far more than needed. Then, as your child grows older, the brain eliminates connections used infrequently (a process known as “pruning”) and strengthens those connections activated most frequently.

For these reasons, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends screening for autism at all 18- and 24-month well-visits—and starting treatment as soon as a developmental delay or autism is suspected.

At LEARN, our providers’ Early Intensive Behavior Intervention (EIBI) Services are designed for children under three years of age, either with a confirmed or suspected diagnosis of autism or a developmental delay.
