As professionals we encourage you to refer a child who you believe has a developmental concern to our centre. We accept referrals for children:

• Who have both short term and life-long needs;

• Who have delays in communication, fine motor, and/or gross motor skill development;

• Who are at risk of developing delays. These include children born prematurely or who have suffered prenatal exposure to drugs or alcohol;

• Who have identified special needs / disabilities such as Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome, Autism;

• Children with significant behaviours and/or social emotional concerns.

 

MODEL OF SERVICE

We believe that all families want their children to develop to their highest potential and we will do our best to:

  • foster, build and reinforce the strengths, assests and strategies families already possess;
  • empower children and their families with support and guidance;
  • provide resources while respecting the families individual values, beliefs and cultural practices.

The Fraser Valley Child Development Centre has an integrated multi-disciplinary team approach. Each child/family is assigned a Primary Service Provider who helps families set goals around their child's development and assist in meeting those goals. This person has access to a team of professional with expertise in all areas of development, who provide consultation and recommendations for each child's growth, learning and development through visits, clinics, groups or therapy.
