Aboriginal Infant Development Program

Our Aboriginal Infant Development Support Workers support Indigenous families with children from birth to three years who are at risk of, or already have, a delay in development.

It is our mission to provide support for families with Indigenous children through:

  • Fostering and nurturing a safe and healthy family environment between families and community services

  • Empowering families to become active participants in the community 

The Aboriginal Infant Development Program can offer unique programs to help further your child's skills, abilities, and wellness through:

  • Nobody’s Perfect Parenting

  • Aboriginal Parent-Child Mother Goose

  • Circle of Security Parenting Program

  • Ages and Stages Questionnaire

  • Infant Massage

The benefits for both parent and child include:

  • Meeting other families in the Vancouver community

  • One to one consultations with AIDP Support Workers

  • Home visits

  • Informal assessments of child and family needs that are culturally sensitive and meaningful

  • Positive parent-child relationships

  • Cultural knowledge and activities

  • Appropriate referrals when necessary or as requested
