prevention 3

It is now understood that the first few years of a child’s life are a particularly sensitive period in the process of development. These early years lay a basic foundation in childhood and beyond for cognitive functioning, as well as behavioral, social and physical health. During these early years, it is essential that children receive every needed developmental support to ensure this strong foundation is established.

The Arc of Palm Beach County’s ForwardLeaps program assesses development and provides no-cost developmental interventions to children and their families.

Who benefits from our program: This Six (6) month prevention program offers in-home developmental interventions for children, from birth to age 5, who are at risk for developmental delays.

What our program provides: The program’s interventions and support services help parents make a real difference in their child’s life. These therapeutic services can range from learning activities to structured fun experiences.
