Infant Development Program

The Infant Development Program (IDP) serves children from birth to three years old who are at risk for, or who already have, a delay in development. There are 52 IDPs throughout the province and more than 65,000 infants and their families have participated in the program.

IDP Consultants work with parents to provide a range of services to help children overcome developmental challenges. Participation in the program is voluntary and family centered. Infant Development Programs are available throughout BC. To find a program in your area, view the community search page.

As part of a range of services for children with special needs, IDP Consultants will also help link families with Supported Child Development, Early Intervention Therapy Program and/or Aboriginal Infant Development Programs, depending of the needs of each child.
