Children’s Care offers free autism screenings to provide early intervention

A recent study conducted by Columbia University has shown again that intensive therapy with young children with autism provides huge benefits for the child’s future. The study, published in the medical journal “Pediatrics,” showed that about 10% of the children “bloom,” enjoying rapid improvement in social skills as they grow older. Improved social and communication skills mean these children can grow to lead a typical life any child assumes to be his or her destiny–with independence and happiness. For parents, this means raising these children to adulthood with higher confidence and less worry about “What will happen to my child when I’m no longer around to protect and advocate for him/her?”

Early intervention truly makes a huge difference, which is why we offer free autism screenings for children age three and under. If you have any concerns at all, call Children’s Care in Sioux Falls or Rapid City, SD and ask for a free autism screen. Don’t wait, time is of the essence for your little one. In Sioux Falls, call (605) 782-2400. In Rapid City, call (605) 342-4412. Our staff can ease your mind or make “next-step” recommendations to help your child be one who “blooms.”

    With 1 in 88 children being diagnosed on the spectrum this is an extremely important screening that every parent should be aware of.
