Aboriginal Infant Development Program (AIDP)

About

The first three years of life are the most important time in a child’s growth and development. Sometimes babies need extra support during the early years. The Aboriginal Infant Development Program (AIDP) works with families in respectful ways to support them and their infants through their early developmental stages. AIDP provides support to families where there is a child from birth to age six years who is showing developmental delays or is at risk of developing mental concerns. For these children, intervention and support can be the most effective when it is begun as early as possible.

Mission

Each child is a special gift from the Creator. The Aboriginal Infant Development Program’s Mission is to honour this gift by supporting the development of Aboriginal children with the context of family, community, and culture and by offering access to culturally appropriate early intervention programming.
