With a remarkable 1 in 68 children diagnosed with autism, it seems that in the modern age, most parents have heard of this neurodevelopmental condition.
While we as a society advocate acceptance and celebration of diversity in individuals, autism in the early years can be a debilitating disorder for the child and their family unit.
Early intervention is considered crucial to help the young child develop skills to enhance and support development of communication skills and cognitive development. These are crucial to them reaching their full potential.
Often, while waiting for a diagnosis, the process of specialist referrals, assessments and wait lists can take months, robbing the child of precious therapy in their critical period of development.
