About the Program
The UCLA Intervention Program is a non-profit program for children with disabilities. It is place to practice and build skills through play (A child’s work) in a specialized supportive environment. Parents are scared, worried, and vulnerable, this program helps parents adjust.
Parent volunteers are trying to bring awareness to the program. This program:
- Helps children build skills for development
- Parents become advocates and know the best ways to support their child
- Selling the support, structure and expertise for children with disabilities and their parents
Why is this program unique?
The program doesn’t exclude any diagnosis (some programs will not accept certain disabilities). Other programs focus on pathology (diagnosis or symptoms), the UCLA Intervention Program looks at the whole child and build a program plan for each child. Beyond the diagnosis and symptoms, they find the child’s strengths. In other words the program, views the whole child, not the pieces that may or may not work differently.

Focus of the UCLA Intervention Program
- Reinforce that play is the learning curriculum of toddlers. Through play, a multitude of pre-academic, social and self-help skills can be learned, practiced and expanded. We carefully support this is in the classrooms and at home.
- Use toys and equipment that are adapted to optimize successes and learning.
- Have a wide range of specialized equipment for those children with motor difficulties. This equipment promotes independence, socialization and skills for eating and drinking independently.
All of this is achieved through a partnership with parents…they know their child and we know child development. Together we are able to support the child’s progress.
