Welcome to Kids Developmental Services
Kids Developmental Services Early Intervention Teams consist of families, preschools or child care centres, and professionals. Your child’s team starts with you and the preschool or child care centre they attend. Each member of your child’s team has the same goal – to see your child develop to their full potential in a play-based, natural and developmentally appropriate environment.
Early Intervention Team members include children, their families, an Alberta certificated teacher; and may include early childhood intervention specialists such as speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, psychologists, child development specialists, developmental assistants, as well as the community preschool or child care center the child attends.
Programming will include classroom support and each child will have an Individualized Program Plan, written by a Certificated Teacher and supported by early intervention therapists.
Programming is based on the results of standardised assessments; parent and teacher anecdotal information; classroom observations; and educational goals that identify the developmentally appropriate needs of the child.
We use a PASI-compliant Student Management Information System for small and mid-sized Alberta educational organisations. SchoolCloud is used for all the child’s registration, documentation, and programming requirements.
To provide additional support and parent coaching, in a private and secure virtual environment, we use Teleroo™ which provides video on universally available devices such as PC, Mac, iOS and Android. The Teleroo™ platform allows us to connect live with the child and their family; and to deliver information, guidance, and resources that parents and family members can review, as often as they like, and whenever or wherever they prefer.
