Early Intervention services are designed to serve infants and young children who are at risk for developmental delay and their families. The target populations include:

• established risk (diagnosed disorder);

• biological risk (early events which may affect an infant's development); and

• psychosocial risk (environmental factors which may accompany and impact established or biological risk)

 

Our early intervention services are provided using a family-centred approach.“Family-centred service recognizes that each family is unique; that the family is the constant in the child’s life; and that they are the experts on the child’s abilities and needs; and the strengths and needs of the family member are considered.” www.canchild.ca. Parents choose goals and objectives with the support of an Infant and Child Development Consultant.
