Early Intervention Program (EIP)

Early Intervention Program (EIP)

The goal of the Occupational Therapist, Physiotherapists, Speech Language Pathologist, Therapy Assistant and Family Support within the Early Intervention program is to provide community-based services and supports to children between birth and school entry who have, or are at risk for, a developmental delay and/or disability, as well as their families and communities.  Recognizing the importance of the early years, the primary goal of the Early Intervention Program is to optimize the growth and development of children from birth to school entry through screening, assessment, family education and support, consultation, monitoring, direct intervention, transition and community planning.  Funded by the Ministray of Children and Family Development.  Communities served within the Bulkley Valley, Upper Skeena, Lakes District and Nechako Lakes.

We work together with the Infant Development ProgramTeam at the CDC.  With your consent, we can also work with other members of the community who are involved in your child’s life, such as Supported Child Development Consultants, Doctors, Nurses, Day-care providers, Pre-school staff, etc.

Parents can refer their child directly to the Early Intervention Program.  If you wish to make a referral, please complete our Referral Form.
