Alberta Education funding for children starting as early as 3 years & 8 months of age with a mild or moderate delay in development. Funding is only available
for a maximum of 2 years with the last year intended for Kindergarten.
I’m for Kids Team provides screening at our partnering private preschools at the request of individual preschools.
We assist preschool teachers by providing appropriate support to children with developmental delays.
Children identified with a Mild or Moderate Delay will be assigned a Program Support Assistant (PSA).
Each child’s program is overseen by an Education Coordinator as well as a Speech Language Pathologist, an Occupational Therapist, a Physiotherapist, or a Psychologist.
Programming occurs within the child’s private preschool and/or in a group session outside of preschool session. There are two IPPs: ongoing goal reviews and revisions.
Children will “graduate” from the Mild/Moderate program when all of the goals are achieved. Often this date of release from the program occurs prior to the end of the school
Our M/M team offers Professional Development training to all of our Preschool Teachers; workshops are available to parents as well as ongoing support.
