Early Childhood Intervention Program

The Early Childhood Intervention Program (ECIP) is a network of community-based supports for the families of children up to the age of six who experience developmental delays or are at risk of delay.

ECIP consultants:

  • build trusting relationships with families;
  • assist families in addressing the delay;
  • use assessment tools to identify the areas of delay;
  • add activities into daily routines that help parents address the delay;
  • connect families to resources within their community; and
  • assist with the transition to school.

1. Eligibility

Children experiencing developmental delays or disabilities and children who may be at risk of experiencing developmental delays are eligible for ECIP services.

These delays may be:

  • cognitive, such as difficulty problem-solving or reasoning;
  • physical, such as difficulty walking or using utensils;
  • social, such as difficulty interacting with others;
  • emotional, such as difficulty coping with negative emotions; or
  • communicative, such as difficulty talking or understanding speech.

Children do not require any diagnosis to begin home-visiting services through ECIP.

ECIP work is most successful when delays are addressed at an early stage. Participation can begin at birth, or as soon as the family notices a delay in development.

Involvement in the program is voluntary. Parents may refer themselves to their local ECIP or be referred by others in the family's care-circle, such as health care professionals or educators, with parental consent.
