If you are concerned about your child’s development, the Infant Development Program can help. The Infant Development Program serves children from birth to three years old who are at risk for, or who already have a delay in development. Programs are available throughout British Columbia. Each program brings parents and professionals together to help children overcome developmental difficulties. Once you are referred to a program, a consultant will visit you in your home. Together, you will plan activities that best meet both your child’s and your family’s needs. If your child has a disability (special need), up-to-date information will be available to you.
