Funded by RCOC, an infant and toddler development program is designed for young children 0-3 years of age with a known or suspected developmental delay in one or more of the five areas of development: fine motor, gross motor, adaptive skills, speech and language, cognition, and social emotional skills.
An infant and toddler development program is provided in-clinic on a consistent basis to promote effective strategies and supports for a child and their family’s natural routines. The therapy includes play therapy, language stimulation techniques, as well as parent education and training. Our infant development program is a play-based, therapeutic session targeting goals based upon a child’s Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP).
An infant and toddler development program focuses on the five areas of development: fine motor, gross motor, adaptive skills, speech and language, cognition, and social emotional skills. Sessions have a strong emphasis on family support and training, and a child’s development of their imitation skills, sustained and joint attention, and play skills.
An infant development program provides foundational learning and development skills in preparation for direct therapy. An infant toddler program can also serve children with mild, global delays who do not need direct specialist intervention. Consultations with specialists (I.e., Speech-Language Pathologist, Occupational Therapist, Physical Therapist, Behavior Analyst) may be provided.
