The Child Development Centre in Kwanlin Dun

A satellite office is located in the Dusk'a Headstart and Family Learning Centre building. A team of therapists work collaboratively with families and community members to support children involved in this program. The team includes physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists, developmental therapists, early childhood therapy assistants, and a psychologist. Once the therapist and family have met, they will talk about what will best meet the needs of the child and family. Children may see one therapist or a team of therapists. No matter who is involved, they will work with the family to determine the family’s priorities and needs of the child. After that, an Individual Program Plan or IPP will be developed that reflects what has been decided.

Children enrolled in the Kwanlin Dun Program may receive services in their home, childcare setting, or any place the family chooses. Services may include assessment, consultations, one-to-one therapy, parent training and support, work with childcare centers, or simply a few ideas to try at home. When it comes time to move into kindergarten, the team can work with the family and school to help make the transition as smooth as possible.
