Caring for a newborn or toddler is challenging in the best of times. Trying to navigate the system of disability-related supports and services while caring for your newly diagnosed baby can be overwhelming. However, a young child’s diagnosis helps to unlock a system of home-based services and supports, known as early intervention, that are specifically designed for children 0-3 years old.
Having knowledge about what resources are available and how to access these systems is essential when navigating the difficult and complex world of parenting a young child with disabilities. There are many resources families can look to for assistance during the first few years of their child’s life. Visit our page on Early Intervention for more information and resources.
