Early Intervention

Being infant and early childhood mental health informed means using knowledge, skills and reflective experiences to guide our work with infants, young children, and families.

In early intervention, this means understanding:

  • That infants and toddlers learn best through everyday experiences and interactions with familiar people in familiar contexts

  • Which assessment and intervention practices can build upon the very young child’s primary relationships which are foundational for healthy development in all domains

  • That an important role of the service provider is to work with and support family members in the infant and very young child’s life 

Interested in Endorsement®?
