We Strive to be an Extension of Your Family

Early Intervention

Early intervention has proven to be crucial to the healthy development of toddlers and young children showing signs of autism and developmental delays. Early intervention focuses on helping the child learn the basic skills that typically develop during the first three years of life, such as: cognitive (thinking, learning, solving problems); communication (talking, listening, understanding); social/emotional (playing, feeling secure and happy); and self-help (eating, dressing). The sooner you can start working with a child, the better chance he or she has of reaching their potential in daily living.    



Axis is always looking for energetic, highly-motivated individuals to join our team.
