This is a program for families with children from birth to 3 years of age who are at risk for, or who may have developmental delays.
How do I use this program? Do I need a referral?
You can self-refer (see contact information on the right) or if you like, a doctor, public health nurse or other community professional can make a referral on your behalf.
What happens once the referral is made?
The Family Advocate (Beth) will contact you and arrange a visit to explain the program. Then, an IDP consultant can come to your home to visit with you and your child. This is where you can talk about your questions and concerns.
What is offered in the IDP program?
- developmental screening and monitoring
- therapy consultation
- service coordination
- a toy and book lending library
- a consultant for children and families of Aboriginal ancestry
As this program is family-centered, families decide what kind of support they need and participation is voluntary.
