This report from the Early Intervention Foundation (EIF) explains the concept of early intervention and how it works to support child development and improve outcomes for children and families. It details the current situation and barriers within the system in England, and the long-term nature of the impact of early intervention. While offering a number of arguments in favour of early intervention, EIF acknowledges that the necessary infrastructure is not yet established and there is still a significant knowledge gap. The report concludes with suggested national and local actions that could be taken in England to help pave the way for implementing early intervention.
