Early diagnosis and early intervention are extremely important for children with disabilities. Early intervention services are a range of targeted services to help young children who have developmental delays or specific health conditions.
As the child walks in, the child is evaluated by the Pediatric Neurologist or Developmental Pediatrician who plans the course of management depending on the status, needs, and capabilities of a child. This child then goes through a set of assessments by a psychologist, results of which are used for defining the treatment plan. Once it is decided that what set of therapies the child needs, a detailed evaluation is conducted by the respective therapist to further dissect the problem and form a therapy plan focusing on the needs of that child. Thus at CONTINUA, we follow a multidisciplinary approach with the multitude of experts in their respective fields including psychologist, speech therapist, occupational therapist, physiotherapist, music therapist, yoga therapist, aquatic therapist, etc to formulate the interventions needed for the child.
The individualised plan is executed in a scientific manner under the supervision of these experts. The treatment plan & progress of the child is communicated to the parents from time to time and home programs are given to empower the parents. The re-evaluation is done every 3 monthly, and progress of the child is recorded and discussed with the parents.

MORE ABOUT AUTISM
MORE ABOUT AUTISM
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder, which interferes with social, behavioral and communication patterns of a child. People with autism are either uniquely gifted or find it difficult to learn, think and solve problems. They are unique in their ways to communicate, interact, behave and learn things, as compared to ordinary people. Sometimes, people with ASD need assistance to carry out daily tasks; others may not need it at all.
ASD commonly includes conditions such as autism, Asperger’s syndrome, pervasive developmental disorder not otherwise specified (PDD-NOS), and childhood disintegrative disorder (CDD).
