Early intervention (for ages 18 months - 10 years) is a set of programmes designed to help babies and children with developmental delays. It may be required under the following circumstances:

Language delay


Poor executive function


Poor eye contact


Poor concentration & difficulty focusing




Poor social skills


Difficulties with comprehension


Low energy levels


Delay in gross or fine motor skills


Challenges with visual perception


Difficulty with sensory processing



Early intervention is the most effective way to help young children before their social, emotional and physical challenges start to impact on their quality of life. Addressing these issues early on in their development - from 18months - is essential to ensure that children reach their maximum potential.

Debora Elijah Early Intervention Centre 

At Debora Elijah's Early Intervention Centre in North West London, groups of mixed-ability children aged from 18 months to 10 years are guided through a programme of activities and games designed to optimise their pre- and post-linguistic and neuro-motor skills. The programme is a combination of best practice in educational, clinical and cognitive psychology.


In the groups, every child receives an individual neuro-cognitive programme that addresses his or her needs both at nursery or school or at home. Targets are set for each child and measured at regular intervals to ensure progress is steady and goals are being reached. Children receive the necessary input to relate better to the world around them, and skills gained are easily transferrable to a typical mainstream classroom scenario. The end goal is to mould each child into a confident and capable individual, capable of tackling every day challenges like everyone else.




Programme Objectives:



Encourage self-awareness, confidence and



Promote independent thinking and behaviour


Facilitate social and communication skills


Develop age appropriate interaction with adults

and peers


Build listening and comprehension skills


Prepare for mainstream schooling and everyday





"The level of the engagement of the children is excellent. Interventions are differentiated to meet each child’s needs. Activities are targeted at raising children’s awareness’s of other children in the group and what they are doing. The children are happy and settled. The PROSCIG methodology builds, independence, functional spontaneous communication, cognitive skills development, social competence, play skill development, generalization of skills, and proactive approaches to problem behaviour."


Laurel Friedman, Leading Educational Psychologist
