Child & Family Health
Seek early intervention. Discover your child's potential.
Our children begin communicating at an early age. They learn to use their vision, hearing, and speech skills to help them get attention, protest, request, comment, ask and answer questions.
When one or more of these skills are delayed or impaired, don't wait and see. We are here to help.
Interested in learning more about early child development? The Best Start Resource Centre provides a comprehensive on-line resource for parents and caregivers.
We just added Part 3 in its video series entitles "Playing with Language". It can be used as an accessible online audio/visual aid for parents and caregivers concerned about their child's communication development.
