Why This Indicator Matters

Developmental problems affect children of all ages indiscriminately, and early intervention is key in mitigating existing developmental issues and preventing future problems from occurring. Early intervention programs are designed to improve the mental, verbal, social and emotional well-being of children who already have developmental disabilities or who are vulnerable due to biological or environmental factors. These programs enhance a child's potential while providing necessary support and assistance to their family. Early intervention has been proven to be cost-effective, to improve the functioning of affected families and to increase developmental and educational gains for the child.
