Parents who have concerns regarding their child’s behaviour and social/emotional development under 36 months may benefit from the advice and guidance of the Infant and Child Development Consultant.
Funding for this service is provided by the Ministry of Children and Youth Services, at no cost to families enrolled in the Infant and Child Development Program
Children over 36 months who are experiencing moderate to severe behavioural and social/emotional difficulties may require support in Play Therapy.
Play Therapy helps children to:
- Heal from traumatic experiences
- Express their feelings
- Communicate problems to others
- Develop new ways of behaving
In play therapy, the child uses play to share and talk about how they are feeling. They are able to work out issues and learn new skills to help them cope. The Play Therapist helps guide the child through this learning process, and works with the family and other caregivers throughout.
Play Therapy is provided on a fee for service basis.
Children to 18 years of age
Children to 36 months of age, service provided at no cost.
Children and Youth to 18 years of age, fee for service basis.
