Early Intervention Program (EIP)

An Early Intervention Programme (EIP) is an individualised intervention plan which provides various types of early intervention services to children from birth to age three who have been diagnosed with specific/general developmental delays, disabilities or other conditions that affect their development. As for the developmental delay, it may range from minor delays in speech development to more major delays in children with autism.

In general, children start school at a designated chronological age. However, due to the young children learn and develop differently, they show differ greatly in their intellectual development and experience base. For example, one may able to read earlier than another, while another may able to write earlier than another. Usually, these differences will even out, yet some of the children will need extra help to foster their development and growth. One of the objectives of EIP is to provide additional instructional resources to help students who are performing below grade level obtain the necessary academic skills to reach grade level performance in the shortest possible time. Thus, the EIP can be used to help children that are at risk of not reaching or maintaining academic grade level.

On the other hand, EIP can make a difference for children with special needs as well. It provides important and appropriate intervention to support the children’s developmental needs and assist their parents in taking care of them. Besides that, not only education part, EIP involves therapeutic approaches to promote the development of autistic children towards the independence and functional daily activities as well as preparation for community-based programmes. In 2012, a research even found that EIP helps to alter brain activity in children with autism. Before placing a child under EIP, a multidisciplinary assessment or evaluation must be carried out to determine the developmental status and functioning level of child, in order to provide an appropriate diagnosis.

早期干预计划(EIP)

早期干预计划(EIP)是一项个性化干预计划,为从出生到三岁的儿童提供各种类型的早期干预服务,这些儿童被诊断出患有特定/一般发育迟缓,残疾或影响其发育的其他疾病。至于发育迟缓,可能包括言语发展的轻微延迟,以及自闭症儿童的更严重延误。

一般而言,儿童在指定的实际年龄开始上学。然而,由于幼儿的学习和发展不同,他们的智力发展和经验基础差异很大。例如,一个人可能能够比另一个人更早地阅读,而另一个人可能能够比另一个人更早地写字。通常,这些差异会消失,但有些孩子需要额外的帮助才能促进他们的发展和成长。EIP的目标之一是提供额外的教学资源,帮助年级以下的学生获得必要的学术技能,以在最短的时间内达到年级水平。因此,EIP可用于帮助有可能达不到或维持学术成绩水平的儿童。

另一方面,EIP也可以为有特殊需要的儿童带来改变。 它提供重要和适当的干预,以支持儿童的发展需求,并协助他们的父母照顾他们。除此之外,不仅教育部分,EIP还涉及促进自闭症儿童发展独立和功能性日常活动的治疗方法,以及为社区项目做准备。2012年,一项研究甚至发现EIP有助于改变自闭症儿童的大脑活动。在将儿童置于EIP之前,必须进行多学科评估或评估,确定儿童的发育状况和功能水平,以便提供适当的诊断。
