Early Integration Program (EIP)
What is the Early Integration Program?
The Early Integration Program provides support to children with developmental concerns and/or delays in licensed Child Care Centres, licensed Private Home Child Cares and Before/after school programs. The Resource Consultant provides developmental screens and assessments and works collaboratively with the child, family, Early Learning Environment and other professionals to help children develop to their full potential. The program promotes the inclusion of all children in the Early Learning Environment.
Who is Eligible for the Early Integration Program?
Children 0 - 12 years of age with a developmental concern and or delay are eligible for the program. Referrals can be made directly to Lansdowne Children’s Centre by parents, or community workers.
What can I expect?
The Resource Consultant will partner with the family to provide family-centered services that support the child, family and Early Learning Environment. The Resource Consultant provides assessment, information and early intervention services in the Early Learning Environment and in the home.
The Resource Consultant assists by taking a case management role helping the families navigate through services as well as transitioning to the child to school to ensure everyone is working together to meet the needs of the child.
Enhanced staffing is available to children who require additional support beyond the Early Learning Environment’s capacity.
