EURLYAID wel­comes you!

Eurlyaid — The Euro­pean Asso­ci­a­tion on Ear­ly Child­hood Inter­ven­tion (EAE­CI) is a par­tic­i­pa­tive asso­ci­a­tion of per­sons, inter­est­ed in issues of ear­ly child­hood inter­ven­tion as well as a work­ing par­ty made up of rep­re­sen­ta­tives of par­ents’ asso­ci­a­tions, pro­fes­sion­als and researchers, from var­i­ous coun­tries of the Euro­pean Union.


Ear­ly Inter­ven­tion for Chil­dren with Devel­op­men­tal Dis­abil­i­ties: Man­i­festo of the Eurlyaid Work­ing Par­ty

Depart­ment of Spe­cial Edu­ca­tion, Catholic Uni­ver­si­ty, PO Box 9103, 6500 HD Nijmegen, The Nether­lands; 
pub­lished in: Inter­na­tion­al Jour­nal of Reha­bil­i­ta­tion Research 16, 23–31 (1993) 

Eurlyaid is a work­ing par­ty of the Euro­pean Com­mu­ni­ty (EC). It con­sists of experts and rep­re­sen­ta­tives of par­ents’ asso­ci­a­tions from the var­i­ous mem­ber states involved in ear­ly inter­ven­tion for chil­dren who are dis­abled or at risk of devel­op­men­tal dis­abil­i­ties. Start­ing from the grow­ing recog­ni­tion of the impor­tance of ear­ly iden­ti­fi­ca­tion and inter­ven­tion Eurlyaid aims to con­tribute to the devel­op­ment of a com­mon EC pol­i­cy and leg­is­la­tion. Here we describe a com­pre­hen­sive frame­work for ear­ly inter­ven­tion, pre­sent­ed as a pre­lim­i­nary man­i­festo. First of all the Man­i­festo gives a def­i­n­i­tion of key con­cepts, delin­eates the tar­get group and states the ratio­nale behind, and the con­tent, of ear­ly inter­ven­tion. Sec­ond­ly, we present the con­di­tions and demands nec­es­sary to attain the best qual­i­ty ear­ly inter­ven­tion, and make a num­ber of rec­om­men­da­tions. With an EC grant, Eurlyaid is able to con­tin­ue its activ­i­ties as part of ALEF­PA-Europe, a so-called non-gov­ern­men­tal orga­ni­za­tion (NGO).
