If you are worried about your child’s development, the Infant Development Program (IDP) can help.

IDP serves children from birth to three years old who live in Burnaby and are at risk for, or who already have, a delay in development. All our programs are “family centered.” This means that you, the parents, decide on what kind of support you need.

For more information please visit http://idp.gobaci.com

Free. Voluntary. Parent-driven.

Families play a key role in every child’s development. From birth to three years old, a child develops at a rapid pace. Physical, social, emotional, behavioral, communication and intellectual development depend in part on experiences provided by the infant’s family.

Families who have used our program in the past include: children with syndromes or disorders, children with developmental delays or medical issues, infants who have been exposed to substances before birth, and children under the care of the Ministry of Children and Family Development (MCFD).

Once you are referred to our Infant Development Program, a consultant will visit you in your home. Together, you will plan activities that best meet your child’s and your family’s needs. If your child has a disability (a special need), up-to-date information will be made available to you.

Infant Development Consultants are professionals. They have skills and knowledge in child development, and can help you enhance your child’s development in these important years.

The Ministry of Children and Family Development of BC supports Infant Development Programs.
