85% of the human brain develops in the first three years of life. Early Intervention Services optimize our brain’s incredible flexibility and rapid development during the Birth to Three window. The success of Early Intervention Services results in as many as one third of children no longer showing a significant developmental delay that would qualify them for special education services in their school districts.
