Regina and area
Ph: (306) 347-5021

Early Childhood Intervention Programs (ECIPs) are a province-wide network of community-based supports for families of children who experience or are at risk for developmental delays. ECIPs utilize a strength-based approach to deliver family-focused, home- and centre-based services to families. Early Childhood Interventionists and Consultants build trusting relationships with families and assist them in working toward mutually-identified goals. There are fifteen ECIPs located throughout Saskatchewan.

Children who are involved with ECIPs are often delayed in reaching age-appropriate developmental milestones such as walking, talking, eating, maneuvering, playing or interacting socially with others, or are born with a condition or diagnosis that makes it more difficult for them to develop at rates that are typical for a specific age group. ECIP interventionists build trusting relationships with families and assist them in working toward mutually-identified goals for their child(ren) and family.

ECIP staff provide an important link between families and other professionals in the Early Learning and Child Care sector and the PreK-12 sector. They strive to work collaboratively with child care providers, speech and language pathologists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, nurses, physicians, early childhood psychologists, teachers, and school administrators, among others, to ensure family-centred goals are achieved and smooth transitions to school and other centre-based programs and services occur.

SCEP CENTRE was created in 1968 as a remedial, professional service for young children with Socialization, Communication, and Education problems. Integral to SCEP's approach are services for the children's caregivers. The approach is holistic and based on respect for each child as an evolving, striving young person with a unique history, with individual needs, abilities and limitations. Help for the children is to be provided in a carefully monitored and enriched social and physical environment that is subjectively and objectively safe. The development of genuine emotional bonds and of honest and tolerant two-way communication and language are seen as the keystones to socialization and education.
