    An Early Intervention Special Instructor is a teacher who specializes in supporting and understanding the social, emotional and cognitive development of young children. The goal of this therapist is to increase a young child's learning opportunities to positively impact his growth. The special instructor works closely with parents and caregivers, so that these experiences can extend throughout a child's daily routine.
