Infant and Child Development Program

 

The Infant & Child Development Program is a specialized program of Algoma Public Health's Parent Child Services. Our program provides services to children birth to five years of age who are delayed or at risk for developmental delay. The main focus of our program is voluntary and parents can choose to have office or home-based visits. Referrals are accepted from any source with parents' consent; parents, physicians, daycares, Early Year Centres, etc.

 

Some possible reasons your child may become involved in ICDP are:

  • Premature birth or low birth weight
  • Difficult delivery with complications, NICU admissions
  • Genetic conditions such as Down Syndrome
  • Prenatal exposure to: alcohol, prescription medications, methadone, etc.
  • Autism screening/assessment
  • Delays in any area of development

 

The Infant & Child Development Program offers a Weekly Developmental Clinic on Wednesday afternoons. Parents can have their child screened and received support, recommendations and follow-up referrals to appropriate services.
