What is the Impact of Early Intervention on Children with Autism? - Ask Kim Video Series

July 12, 2018
The moment we become parents, we have hundreds – if not thousands – of questions that pour in:
“How many diapers do I need?”
“Is he hungry?”
And the biggie…
“Will I ever sleep again?”
As parents and caregivers of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and developmental delays, these questions are amplified and tend to grow exponentially.
Here at Hopebridge, we want to help families both near and far get the answers they need. Whether it’s through one of our centers becoming the “answer” your kiddo needs, or by sharing tips and information so you can more easily navigate the autism journey, we’re here for you. That’s why we’re kicking off a new series with our founder and chief superhero, Kim Strunk.
As part of our “Ask Kim” series, she answers some of your most pressing questions via short videos. She relies on more than 10 years of experience at the helm of Hopebridge, plus her extensive knowledge as an occupational therapist to educate on a range of topics.
Her answers will cover all ends of the spectrum, but she begins at the same place as many parents when they notice signs of autism start to appear:
“What should I do next?”
“Does my child really need a diagnosis?”
“Can I wait to see if she grows out of it?”
“Why is early identification and intervention so important for my child?”
From this video you can learn from Kim why talking to your pediatrician and scheduling a diagnostic assessment for your child (as young as 18 months!) could have a major impact on his or her life.
As Kim mentions, it’s best not to miss the opportunity to shape learning during the peak developmental stages, which could affect long-term outcomes. Are you ready to schedule an evaluation or seek therapy for your child? Reach out to us so we can find a center close to you and build a plan for your family.
