Abstract

There is little doubt that the earlier an intervention occurs in the life of the child, the more successful it is likely to be. One of the most effective ways of increasing resilience in all children is to implement intervention programs within the school context. However, many educational authorities have yet to recognize that early intervention is preferable to remedial programs, and ultimately beneficial to both the individual and the wider community.
