Early childhood development and early intervention
Early childhood development refers to the process of physical, cognitive, personality, and psychosocial growth occurring from birth through age 5. Early childhood education refers to programs for toddlers and preschool children. Early intervention is action taken using medical, family, school, social, or mental health resources. It is aimed at infants and children at risk for or in the early stages of mental, physical, learning, or other disorders. The term may also include obstetric and prenatal care. In the United States, the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requires that children 3 years of age and older with disabilities receive educational services through public school systems. Consequently, early intervention programs most often serve children from infancy up to 3 years of age.
