Early Intervention

     

Early Intervention... because research tells us the earlier parents are involved, the better children do.

The Simcoe County Early Intervention Services system provides young children with special needs and their families with a wide range of services and supports to help them develop to their fullest potential.  We support the early identification and treatment of infants and young children with special needs up to six (6) years old, or those who may be at risk of experiencing barriers to development, who live in Simcoe County.

  • Feeding and nutrition

  • Screening and assessments
  • A range of therapy services
  • Specialized clinical services
  • Autism specific services
  • Family support and counselling
  • Behaviour management

Services are free and funded through the County of Simcoe, Ministry of Education, Children’s Treatment Network, Ministry of Children and Youth Services, Ministry of Community and Social Services, Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care.
