About one out of every three infants who scores well below average on a test of developmental skills -- and is therefore considered at a high risk of having delays -- does not get referred to early intervention services, according to a new study.
I find this article really sad, and hope that these numbers show some drastic changes. Parents need to know how important early intervention can be to their future development, and advocate for their kids when necessary.
Why do you think kids are not getting referred? Did you have a problem getting early intervention?
