Early Intervention is a home or community based service that provides personalized supports to your family and baby. We partner with you to help identify and answer the questions or concerns you may have about your baby. Our team comes directly to you, to provide ideas, information, and support that fits into your family’s day to day routines and activities. All of our services are flexible and based on your family’s preferences.
This responsive and supportive service is here to help you and your baby (between the ages of 0-3 years) that may have special developmental needs or health concerns which may put them at risk for, or cause, a developmental delay. Some examples of this may include helping your infant or toddler with their talking, walking, and/or eating; or maybe they were born with Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, have trouble hearing or seeing, or babies born early or having trouble gaining weight. We also provide supports to those who have had Children, Youth & Family Department (CYFD) involvement, history of drug use, mental illness or homelessness.
Anyone can make a referral to our Early Intervention program.
