With Chaya Kulkarni (BAA, M.Ed, Ed.D)Director, Infant Mental Health Promotion, The Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto
Early developmental screening is essential in predicting and intervening in a child’s early life trajectory. However, simply conducting developmental screens and making referrals that result in lengthy wait times does not reflect current research showing that early detection must be followed by early response in order to effectively change a developmental trajectory. Infant Mental Health Promotion (IMHP) has developed a framework for providing interim strategies through the creation of an individualized plan to monitor and support the growth of a child in key areas of development, namely: communication, problem-solving, personal-social, gross motor and fine motor.
This Developmental Support Planning (DSP) model which provides a caregiver friendly resource to support the unique developmental needs of every child. DSPs are informed by caregiver observations, interviews and any screenings or assessments and serve as an immediate response to any developmental vulnerabilities a child may show, and can be used throughout professional practice to enhance interactions between a parent and child. The presenter will discuss ways in which this plan could be shared and implemented with other professionals and the families with which they work.
