"Possibilities in the Field of Early Childhood Intervention: From Birth to Three years of Age" conferece synopsis:


"The rate of all aspects of development is fastest in the first years of a child’s life. This holds true for all children, whether they develop in a typical or in a different way or whether they are vulnerable to impaired development.


Early childhood intervention aims at providing comprehensive assistance to affected children as well as their families during the early stages of life. Over the past decades, the experiences obtained by professionals both in Hungary and other countries, as well as the needs communicated by parents of differently developing children have made it clear that in order to perform early childhood intervention with the highest possible effectiveness, children must be diagnosed accurately and as early as possible. In addition, the services of early childhood intervention must be comprehensive, continuous and of high quality and the parents must be involved as a partner into the processes in accordance with family-focus view. Furthermore the treatment must be customized to the needs of the family and their living environment.


The primary goal of this conference is to examine whether we are actually doing all we can to assist children in need of early intervention during the first and most formative period of their lives. We intend to explore international experience and research results, present domestic and special regional practices along with specifically Hungarian forms of therapy. We are to follow the process of early childhood intervention from diagnosis and screening all the way to actual treatment, taking into consideration the perspectives of both parents and professionals and looking into the aspects of teamwork and partnership between parent and professional. The organizers will provide interpretation for plenary and session presentations that are in Hungarian."
