There has been a dramatic rise in the number of children diagnosed with neurodevelopmental and other disorders, leading to increased attention paid to assessment and intervention issues. Raising awareness gives hope of breaking down barriers and prejudices that prevent social inclusion. Among people with disabilities, children are especially vulnerable to hidden disabilities in the early years, and delays in rehabilitative initiatives lead to delays in development. At Impact, we have specialists to do an assessment. Evaluation can be done for any of the neurodevelopmental disorders like:
- Learning disorders.
- Intellectual disabilities.
- Autism spectrum disorder (ASD)
- Communication disorders.
- Attention-deficit/hyperactive disorder (ADHD)
- Global developmental delay.
- Neurodevelopmental motor disorders
- Conduct disorders.
Benefits of Early Assessment
Early Detection Will Lead to Better Management Plan
Early diagnosis can assist in developing stimulating environments where parents, healthcare, and educational professionals are better equipped to support the growth, inclusion, and active participation of children with disabilities. Impact aims to educate parents about the rights of children with disabilities, how to access them, and basic caregiving techniques to appropriately enhance their children’s development without adding to their workload.
Better Understanding of Child’s Behavior
Parents should try to confirm their doubts about their child’s potential special needs as soon as possible. An early diagnosis can help you better understand your child, plan, and foresee potential difficulties. Accessing vital resources for people with special needs is another benefit.
Parents can find answers About their Children’s Atypical Development.
Families can find some of the answers to their questions about their children’s atypical development by receiving an assessment as soon as possible. This enables them to start learning about the problem, comprehending how it affects their child, and starting to change how they view the future. It enables families to replace worry and wishful thinking with factual knowledge about the nature of their child’s difficulties.
Stress can be Reduce by Early Assessment
Receiving a diagnosis often frees families from the anxiety that comes with the diagnostic process by enabling them to shift from unfocused worry to mobilized efforts to learn about the disorder, find support for their child, and move into some action plan.
Early Detection of Learning Disabilities
Even though all learning disabilities are caused by the structure or function of the brain, each child’s problem manifests differently at a different age. Not understanding why young children struggle in school will keep them from receiving the support they require to succeed both now and in the future. If neglected, learning disabilities can get severe with the passage of time.
It is always best to diagnose learning disabilities as soon as possible, thus they can be found at any age, from preschool to high school. Early diagnosis not only increases a child’s chance of achieving their academic potential but also delays the emergence of behavioral issues and low self-esteem, further hindering learning. The likelihood that children will develop the skills necessary to conduct a successful adult life can be increase through early diagnosis and intervention plan.
