What is The Infant Development Program (IDP)?
The infant development program provides services for children from birth to three years who are at risk for, or have developmental delays. We use a home-based and family-centered approach to provide individualized services for families.
How does IDP support your family?
We help families gain the tools, skills and community connections necessary to encourage their child’s development and promote positive parent-child interactions. Consultants may help link families with other services and resources.
We often offer groups as an opportunity for families to meet and connect, these include:
Let’s Play is a playgroup for two-year-olds, which provides the opportunity of a new and positive environment away from their home and caregivers as well as emphasizes positive interaction between children. Children who are currently involved with NONA are given first priority.
Families who are involved with NONA are welcome to join this drop-in group with their young children. This group offers a chance to informally connect, play, and share with other families.
If you have concerns about your infant or toddler’s development, please complete our referral form. Click here to access the form. Other NONA programs, doctors, community health nurses and other professionals can also make referrals to this program. The Infant Development Program is voluntary and free of charge.
