The Early Intervention Unit (EIU)
The Early Intervention Unit offers services for early detection, screening and management of high risk babies and infants. The children are assessed for delays in different developmental aspects such as motor, language, cognitive, self-help and social skills. Play way methods are used to stimulate the developmental functioning of the children. A home based program is also prepared and explained to parents, and followed up regularly.
