|Service and Access Details|
|Description (Service)||Family-centred early intervention program designed for children under 5 years of age. These children may be developing more slowly than expected, or their development is at risk because of birth or medical problems, genetic disorders, prematurity, hearing and/or visual impairment, limited parenting experience or for reasons unknown.
Infant development therapists see families regularly to provide parents with ideas and suggestions to help the child develop to his/her potential. Parental participation is the essential component to this program.
Information is provided on appropriate activities, exercises and toys to promote all areas of the child's development. Program staff assess the infant's abilities in motor coordination, language development, cognitive abilities, social and self-help skills. Parents and the therapist then set learning goals for the child. Information is also provided on other available services and resources, such as parent support groups and waterplay sessions, which may benefit the child.
Referrals to Infant and Child Development Services can be made by parents, family physicians, public health nurses, and community agencies.
