Infant Development Program

What do we do?

If you are concerned or have questions about your child’s development (age 0 to 3), we can help.

We serve families with children from birth to 3 years old who are at risk, or who already have a delay, or have a diagnosed disability.

 

Why do we work with children who are so little?

Skills children learn between the ages 0 to 3 are the building blocks for their later development and school readiness.

 

What areas of development can we help you with?

  • Eating
  • Talking
  • Playing
  • Crawling
  • Toilet Training
  • Behaviour
  • Sleeping
  • Walking

How much does it cost?
