An Infant and Child Development consultant will contact you and arrange a home visit to meet you. A simple discussion about your child’s development will help you to identify early goals. Through a family centered routines-based service model, the program will focus on building the capacity of the parent/caregiver to nurture and enhance the child's well-being and development. The focus is on developing motor, language, social and problem solving skills. Children may be followed by Infant and Child Development from birth until school entry. At that time, discussions around the need for ongoing supports will take place.
