Our Philosophy   
We believe in providing early intervention services using a family-centred appraoch. "Family centred service recognizes that each family is unique; that the family is the constant in the child's life; and that they are the experts on the child's abilities and needs; and the strengths and needs of the family member are considered" (www.canchild.ca)
