The Benefits of Early Intervention Therapy (EI)
Solace Pediatric Home Healthcare is the leading provider of in-home therapy to 4,000+ children in Colorado
As you know, the possibility of a child showing signs of a delay can be stressful for any parent. Research from the National Institute of Child Health and Development* indicates that when intervention is delayed, it takes four times as long to intervene in fourth grade as it does in late kindergarten due to brain development and an increase in content for students to learn as they grow. Early intervention is crucial in ensuring that a child can lead their best life while staying on track with developmental milestones.
According to the American Academy of Pediatrics*, the prevalence of any developmental delay is estimated at 15 percent in U.S. children three to 17 years of age. Only three percent of all children receive the needed public early intervention services by three years of age. The percentage of school-aged children receiving public intervention services reaches a peak of 12.5 percent between the ages of nine and 12 years.
The gap that exists for children needing moderate therapy to increased levels of therapy, including additional behavior therapy can be addressed by intervening early, identifying with a comprehensive evidence based medical evaluation and one-to-one individualized therapy by a specialized pediatric clinician.
At Solace Pediatric Home Healthcare, we're proud to provide in-home EI therapy to children to support their growth in reaching developmental milestones. In-home EI therapy care through occupational, speech, feeding, physical therapy and behavior sessions use evidence-based techniques tailored to meet a child’s needs with a child-friendly focus. By providing one-on-one individual care in a child’s natural environment, we assist in establishing a strong foundation for future learning. Our mission is to support our families in providing professional clinical evaluations, treatment options, resources and information so they feel empowered to make the best decision for their child and family.
At Solace we treat children from birth to 21 years. Our leading in-home therapy delivered in-person or via live telehealth sessions provides access to more children, including those in remote areas or with complicated transportation and schedule conflicts. Our differentiated care experience allows children and families to thrive.
Integrated therapy is a strategy that Solace Pediatric Home Healthcare often uses to foster a child’s motivation during their session. Exploring what motivates a child experiencing developmental delays is a huge part of our clinicians' job and is learned through years of experience working with different personalities and challenges. Understanding the individual therapy needs of our clients is essential to providing individualized treatment plans and objectives that make sure therapy goals are being met and validated.
Meet Jack, one of our patients who has participated in these integrative therapy sessions. Jack has been building his skills both through physical therapy and speech language therapy since 2019.
This style of integrated therapy between his physical and speech language exercises has worked tremendously for Jack! He continues to have very successful sessions and stays motivated throughout his one-on-one therapy sessions.
