The Infant and Child Development Program provides a range of early identification, and early intervention services and supports for families of infants and young children who have a developmental delay or who are at risk for delayed development.
Staff members have training in one or more of the following disciplines: child development; psychology; early childhood education; infant mental health; developmental services or other related disciplines.
KidsInclusive is committed to continued education for staff both locally and provincially, through the support of the Ontario Association of Infant and Child Development.
The Infant and Child Development Consultants assist families in the identification of their needs, resources and service requirements. They work with the family and KidsInclusive team members to provide developmentally appropriate, family-centred intervention that will support optimal development and outcomes.
They provide home-based intervention services within the child’s natural environment, which includes informal and formal assessments, interventions to foster all areas of development, as well as family support and advocacy.
