Who We Are
The UCLA Intervention Program’s team works closely with parents to design a Program Plan for their child. Our team includes the Medical Director (a pediatrician with a subspecialty in Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics) and colleagues in the subspecialty, early childhood educators, physical and occupational therapists, assistant teachers and the director.

The UCLA Intervention Program’s team of professionals meets daily to prepare for each child’s activities based upon their individual educational plans.  Our transdisciplinary team approach brings together each person’s expertise to more fully understand the whole child.  This comprehensive process is then implemented to provide materials and activities that promote and motivate learning for each child in the classroom. The program operates on a year-round calendar.

What We Do
The Intervention Program’s services include:

  Infant Services (birth to 18 months)
  Toddler Program (18 to 36 months)
  Individual Physical Therapy
  Let’s Get Movin’—A Parent-and-Me Movement Group
  Pollywog Pool Play Program
  Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics Clinic
Infants (Birth to18 months) and their parents meet weekly with our team to tailor activities for each child’s specific needs. Our “mini” school day introduces the child and parent to a variety of experiences, including refinement of gross and fine motor skills through play-based activities, introduction to computer play, use of a variety of communication strategies, and practice in eating and drinking skills. Staff, parents, and children play and work together at stimulating and fun activities. Parents also make guided observations of their child’s unique strengths and competencies.
