Developmental Support Services

Developmental Support Services


The Developmental Support Services program functions from a strengths-based approach that upholds the inherent sacredness of children.

We provide guidance, support and look for opportunities to enhance existing strengths and capacities.

The Developmental Support Services program is designed to engage children, families and communities to become involved in the natural and healthy growth of all children. When you have concerns about your child's learning, growth or development we will assist you in acquiring the skills to support your child or help you to access other services.

Our mission is "to provide culturally appropriate, trauma informed, high quality care in the areas of physical, emotional, social, intellectual and spiritual development through collaborative child/family focused and community based interventions"

We offer home based services and will work with your child and family in an environment where you are most comfortable.

We are here to help by providing screening, consultation, informal and formal assessments, direct intervention and developmental therapy under the supervision of our Occupational Therapist. Our services are available to members of the 10 First Nation communities, on or off reserve and between the ages 0-16.
