Calgary Zone - Early Childhood Rehabilitation Services


Description
Provides goal-focused, time limited intervention and parent education for medically stable children from birth to kindergarten edibility with neuro-developmental concerns or developmental delays / disabilities that are impacting daily life; or an acute change in function and / or a significant regression of skills.

Based on clinical need, a child may access support from key providers, intervention is individualized to support the child and family and may include:

  • screening
  • informal / formal assessment
  • parent/caregiver education sessions
  • direct teaching / coaching
  • individual and / or group sessions
  • equipment support
  • support with accessing community-based resources

This program requires parents / caregiver readiness to actively participate in intervention sessions. With support, parents / caregivers will identify a functional goal on which they would like to focus rehabilitation intervention and will be coached on how to carry-out developmental recommendations in the home and community. Attending an parent / caregiver orientation session is the first step of our programming (*exceptions may apply e.g. English Language Learners, complex child/family needs).
