Research indicates that a child's most effective teachers are those with whom they have a nurturing relationship and with whom they spend the most time, such as parents, grandparents, or child care providers. How these individuals interact with the child while feeding, diapering, playing, and cuddling will have the greatest impact on how a child develops and learns. The team of early intervention professionals will aid and support the family while teaching skills that can be carried out on a daily basis in order to meet the child's developmental needs.
*Early Intervention offers service coordination in Bibb, Greene, Hale, Marengo, Pickens, Sumter and Tuscaloosa Counties.
