Toddlers for Early
Intervention is used to facilitate the normal development of
pre-requisite verbal and non-verbal skills in infants;
cognitive, social, and communication.
It helps infants who are at risk for developing
language difficulties as a result of prematurity, low birth

family visits the therapist to evaluate the infantís progress,
