Early Childhood Intervention: Module Three – The Professionals

The “I” Professionals

Infant Development Consultant

Infant Development Consultants (Fig. 1) work with families of children under the age of three who have  or are at-risk for developmental delay. Infant Development Program (IDP) consultants provide home visits, assessment, program planning and meetings with other families.  Some IDP consultants provide other services. For example, they may monitor the development of babies and young children who do not receive home visit services while on the wait time period between the initial consultation and the first home visit. They may also have drop-in programs, like “language stimulation.” The IDP Office of the Provincial Advisor provided guidance, training and direction for all IDP programs in the province until December of 2009, when the MCFD terminated this Office.
