Liz Lyon, R.I.S.P., Urbanna, Helping Kids overcome!
Liz Lyon has an MS in psychology, is a qualified child mental health provider, and has a BS in exercise physiology with concentration in community health. She's the early intervention director of the Rural Infant Services Program (RISP).
The Rural Infant Services Program (RISP) provides support for children from birth to three years of age who may have developmental delays. Much of a child's future takes shape in the first years of life. This is a unique "window of opportunity" and is a time of discovery and a time to learn the basic skills that will last a lifetime. But not all children grow and learn at the same pace. Some children need extra help to learn new skills or other ways to master basic skills.
Liz shares her passion! Early intervention services for infants and toddlers have proven to be a very worthy investment in the future, with considerable long-term benefits. Longitudinal studies of early intervention programs have documented the long lasting effects and cost benefits of early intervention, which stretch from preschool to adulthood.
