The Importance of Early Intervention
Dr. Greenberg explains that early intervention is critical because it teaches children how to learn at a critical point in their development. By eliminating inappropriate, ineffective behaviors and replacing them with adaptive skills, early intervention helps children with developmental deficits learn the skills they will need to function socially and academically.
"Early intervention can be really effective in eliminating inappropriate behaviors and replacing them with appropriate behaviors and that makes them (the children) more available for learning. "
