MCFD provides early childhood intervention services to infants and young children who show signs of, or are at risk of having, a developmental delay or disability. These services are often tailored to the specific needs of each child with the goal of furthering development and enhancing the child’s potential for growth and development.
The EIT Program provides community-based occupational therapy, physiotherapy, speech-language pathology and support services for eligible children – to optimize their growth and development from birth to school entry – and their families and communities.
The community-based EIT services include screening, referral, assessment, family education and support, service planning, direct therapeutic intervention, consultation, monitoring, transition planning to school and/or other services, and training of community members. EIT services are provided in home and in community settings, such as preschool and child-care centres. Click here to view PDF.
