The Importance of Early Diagnosis and Intervention

November 29, 2022

Early diagnosis and intervention for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder have been found in numerous scientific studies and research to be likely to have beneficial long-term effects on the child’s symptoms and skills. ASD can be diagnosed before a child has reached 2 years of age, according to research. At Total Care ABA Therapy, we encourage parents to be proactive in having their child assessed as early as possible by their pediatrician, typically during the child’s 18- and 24-month checkups, even if the child has not exhibited symptoms, but especially if they have presented symptoms.

Early intervention at or before preschool age, when a child’s brain is still forming, can have a profound impact on the child’s emotional, social, physical and communication skills. Once a diagnosis has been made, Total Care’s highly qualified Board Certified Behavior Analysts, known as BCBAs, perform a comprehensive assessment that guides us in creating a personalized treatment plan. ASD affects children in many different ways, which is why we take into consideration each child’s individual skill set and the needs of their family members when recommending treatment. 

Total Care Therapy is the foremost provider of Applied Behavior Analysis — the scientifically recognized gold standard in treating ASD. We are committed to improving each child’s learning, everyday communication skills and coping behaviors to decrease the risk of harm. Our comprehensive approach includes providing the training and tools parents need to integrate our therapy goals into their home life.

The benefits of early intervention and treatment for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder cannot be overstated. The experience and passion for guiding each child and family to achieve lasting quality-of-life improvements is unmatched. If a family member has been diagnosed with ASD and you have questions about our comprehensive services, please contact us today. Let us travel the journey to success together!
