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. Home visits are play-based, as that is how children learn best. Parents and caregivers are active participants in the planning and visits. The focus is on maturing of motor, language, social, problem solving and self-help skills. Children may be followed by Infant and Child Development up until their 6th birthday. At that time, a discussion around the need for ongoing supports will take place.
