We can help if you have concerns about the development of your child

The Infant Development Program supports families with children from birth to three years of age who are at risk for, or who have, developmental delays. The program brings families and professionals together to support infants and toddlers through early developmental stages. It’s an opportunity for parents to:

  • Learn ways to encourage your child’s development
  • Discuss parenting and child development
  • Access other community resources and activities

For your child to:

  • Become more independent
  • Discover abilities
  • Learn new skills

Families play a vital role in every child’s development. From birth to three years, a child develops at a rapid pace. Together we plan play activities that best meet the child’s and family’s needs.

 

COMMUNITY REFERRALS

Families may contact the Infant Development Program directly, or may be referred by others with family consent.  The Family Resource Consultant will contact the family to make an appointment to visit in the child’s home
