We believe that the family is the most important influence in a child’s life. Parents and guardians are encouraged and supported in becoming actively involved in planning, decision making, and participating in their child’s intervention plan.
Our primary goals are: to promote healthy child development by identifying children at risk for developmental delays at an early age; and to provide timely, effective, family-centred interventions that will help all children achieve their fullest potential.
This guide was developed to help early intervention therapists offer small group therapy intervention in community settings. It is designed to be printed double-sided and in colour, but please consider the environment first. If you are viewing the document in PDF, the Table of Contents headings are hyperlinked to the appropriate sections. Please feel free to use the templates as a guide to create your own forms for your groups.
