How do we do it?

Inclusion Support
 
 

The Key Worker is able to partner with a family and the community to meaningfully include infants, preschoolers and primary school aged children who experience developmental delay or disability and their family  into everyday life activities. These may include, but are not limited to,  preschool and other early education and care settings, big school and community activities such as  story time at the library, shopping, going to the park or the pool.

 

ODEEP staff are able to visit these community locations and activities to offer support to the staff so that their capacity to fully include children experiencing a developmental delay or disability is improved. This may include family, recreation and cultural activities.

 

At ODEEP all families have a Key Worker who is your main point of contact at ODEEP. Your Key Worker is able to provide information and options to you to help you find the services and supports you want. Your Key Worker will work with you to help set goals for your child and family. The Key Worker will also connect you to other staff on the ODEEP team and to other professionals in the community and other activities in the community that your family may be interested in.

The majority of ODEEP’s services and supports are available to families who have an infant, preschooler or primary school aged child experiencing development delay or disability.
