The Infant and Child Development Program serves children from birth to school entry who have a developmental disability and/or risk of developmental delay. A child is eligible to receive services until as early as junior kindergarten entry or up to grade one entry if the child does not attend kindergarten.
Although children do not need a diagnosis to access services, children may show concerns related to a diagnosed medical condition, or to a history of prenatal, perinatal, neonatal and/or early development events.
There are 49 Infant and Child Development Programs across Ontario that are publicly funded and serve children from birth to school entry who have a developmental disability and/or risk of developmental delay by providing support, information, and early intervention services.
