In my opinion, it is never too late to help someone succeed, no matter what the circumstances or age. On the other hand, with a doctoral research thesis specializing in early intervention,  the phrase "too early" is a difficult concept to consider. Rarely is "too early" a term expressed in conversations related to early intervention and identification. Professionals and parents should seek to provide appropriate follow-through services for individuals identified as early as possible. Early identification benefits a person's development rather than causing possible harm by not getting services at all or possibly even “waiting to see”. Strategically aiming to reduce the negative effects of not providing services, which can lead to possible academic, emotional, and social struggles in the future, is a better initiative in my view.
