Recognizing developmental risks, delays and disabilities in the first years of life and tackling them through early childhood intervention (ECI) is critical as it gives children a chance to develop to their full potential and to overcome developmental risks and delays or reduce the impact of developmental disabilities. Early childhood intervention can thus change a child’s
develomental path and improve outcomes for children, families and communities.

This was the key conclusion of the regional conference “Optimal Early Childhood Development for Every Child”, which was organized in Podgorica, Montenegro on 9–10 November 2022, with the support of the Government of Montenegro, UNICEF and the European Union.
