Narrowing the gap in early development


As children grow, we expect them to achieve a range of early skills, and though many in our settings experience delays, it is possible to make a difference by preventing problems before they escalate. By Itkit

ADVERTORIAL

Every year, many young children across the UK experience delays in achieving some of their developmental milestones. Some are failing to meet milestones in areas such as:

  • Learning to speak and understanding language.
  • Playing and interacting with their peers at an age-appropriate level.
  • Developing the physical coordination and movement required for everyday life skills.

Many children are beginning their life journey with delays, therefore, creating gaps in development between themselves and their peers. There is clearly a need to identify these delays and for early intervention.

Can we narrow the gaps in development?

itkit2Yes, we can! As children grow, we expect them to achieve a range of early skills. It is possible to make a difference for children by preventing problems before they escalate. The Itkit is a tool designed to help practitioners and parents do just that. We want all children to grow up into well- functioning, happy and healthy adults.
