Infant and Preschool Assessment Service

The 1 to 3 day assessment:

  • can help families/caregivers understand and learn more about the child's developmental disability/disabilities
  • directs the family/caregiver to appropriate community resources

The family is given a brief summary of the findings, diagnosis, and recommendations on the day of assessment.

A detailed report is mailed to the family and doctor after the assessment.

IPAS (Infant and Preschool Assessment Service) doesn't do assessments when the purpose is only to access treatment funding, determine school or adoption placements, or monitor progress.


Children ages 6 months to Grade 1 entry. Children must have already had the available developmental assessments (e.g., SLP, OT, EIP, audiology) in the community and should have started intervention if appropriate, before referral to this program.
