About ECIP Regina
The Early Childhood Intervention Program's (ECIP's) share the vision that, “All families have the capacity to meet the developmental needs of their children within the community of their choice.”
Children who are involved with ECIP are often delayed in reaching age-appropriate, developmental milestones such as walking, talking, eating, maneuvering, playing or interacting socially. ECIP helps children who experience developmental delays to reach their best potential. ECIP staff build relationships with families and assist them in working toward mutually-identified goals for their children and family.
- ECIP staff provide an important link between families and other professionals.
- ECIP staff work collaboratively with child care providers, speech and language pathologists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, nurses, physicians, early childhood psychologists, teachers, and school administrators, among others, to support achievement of family-centered goals.
- ECIP staff also support smooth transitions into school and other centre-based programs and services as needed.
- Children’s development is maintained or enhanced as a result of participation in ECIP.
- Families have increased knowledge regarding their child’s needs and strengths and the needs and strengths of their family.
- Families’ confidence to advocate for their children who experience, or are at risk for, developmental delays will be enhanced.
- Communities will become more inclusive as families connect to other programs and services that meet their needs.
Funding for the Early Childhood Intervention Program is provided by: Government of Saskatchewan, Indigenous Services Canada and the United Way of Regina.
