The Zero2Six Program, offered in partnership with Lutherwood, provides individual consultation sessions to parents/guardians of infants, toddlers and preschoolers (birth to six years of age). The one-hour sessions focus on social/emotional development, behaviour challenges or parenting strategies. This service is offered in partnership with the Waterloo Region Ontario Early Years Centres.
The Zero2Six Program provides intensive home-based support services to families living in Waterloo Region with children from birth to age six, who are experiencing or at risk of developing social, emotional, behavioural and /or mental health challenges.
A Family Support Worker will work with your family in your home or in the community for up to three months to help increase your understanding of your unique family, reinforce family strengths and build coping skills. The Family Support Worker engages you, the parent(s), as equal partners to identify desired changes, set goals, develop skills and practice strategies in order to address challenges. Families are involved in tracking progress and evaluating success throughout the program.
Areas of focus can include:
- child development,
- emotion regulation,
- social skills,
- behaviour management
- family communication and relationships.
Family Support Workers can also assist you to explore relevant, local resources and services.
