Early Intervention services are focused on supporting infants and children to reach their full potential and are delivered by staff that provides both Infant Development and Resource Consulting. By working with the infants and children, their families and other organizations such as childcare centers and schools, we are able to provide successful integration and promote overall optimal development.
Family Support is a “hands-on” service which focuses on parenting and child-rearing issues. Support is provided for a broad range of issues such as bedtime routines and everyday child-rearing concerns. Whatever the key issues are for the family, the staff help by linking them to the services and supports that they require.
Respite provides support to qualifying children, youth and families. Respite can take the form of attending a summer camp (with support if required for day camps), weekend respite with a host family, in-home respite, or attending a customized community-based program. Respite provides a break for parents and young people alike. The programs provide a fun, safe and social experience for the child or youth with exceptional needs.
