Early Intervention

The role of early intervention in the life of a child with special needs is to introduce therapeutic services and educational programs at an early age in an effort to make significant, long-lasting progress that will affect the child’s development throughout their life. Reserarch shows that early intervention can dramatically improve a child’s long-term prognosis with early therapy and family oriented instruction. Our therapists, service coordinators, and special instructors provide an enormous amount of emotional support for these families as well as assisting them in making crucial decisions regarding the care and developemnt of their child. In the course of a year, East Central Alabama UCP serves over 200 children age birth to three in a five county region that includes Calhoun, Clay, Cleburne, Randolph, and Talladega counties.
