Welcome to the UC Davis MIND Institute and Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (CEDD) resource page for Early Intervention.
Early assessment is the process of testing a young child to determine if medical or developmental challenges are present. If there is a diagnosis of a developmental disability, additional information, treatments, therapies, programs, services and strategies will be suggested. These are considered early intervention and are critical to helping a child develop to their full potential.
For information about typical development and developmental milestones see our Development Resource Page.
