 Infant & Child Development Services


This service offers family-centred intervention to families of infants and young children with developmental risks who live in Peel. In-home or office visits, consultation, assessment and screening, counselling and community education are provided. Resources available include both a toy library and a book library.

For children under three years, the service is more comprehensive. It is more consultative or short-term in nature for children 3-6 years.

Services include home and centre-based individual intervention, community and centre-based group interventions, and community consultations to help maintain children in their community environments.

Temporary service is provided for some children and families who are on a waiting list. Care pathways are used for children born prematurely.
