Parent Infant Program

The Guidance Center’s Parent Infant Program is a prevention and intervention program for families who are either expecting a child or who have infants and toddlers under three years old.

 

What do we offer?

  • Supportive counseling
  • Developmental guidance
  • Parent-infant therapy
  • Assessments
  • Concrete services
  • Advocacy as needed

These services are provided in the home or in the community.

 

What is our goal?

Our primary goal is to help parents prepare for and adjust to the birth of a child, and to support early parent-child relationships.

Our guiding principle is that the infant’s early experiences are critical for later personality development.

Our hope is to help infants and their families to reach their optimal development.

 

Who can receive services?

Any parent with a child under the age of three who:

  • feels that their baby is fussy or difficult to soothe
  • finds their baby unusually quiet or uninterested in them
  • is concerned about how active their child is
  • is worried that their baby is not eating well or growing as expected
  • has a child experiencing long and frequent temper tantrums
  • has a child experiencing difficulties sleeping or separating
  • feels burdened by the demands of parenthood
  • is experiencing symptoms of postpartum depression
  • wants some support about being a parent
  • has any concerns or worries about their baby
