The following links may serve as valuable resources for parents seeking information about their child's development. While the goal of the Early Intervention Association of Nova Scotia is to help parents access all available information, these sites are not monitored by EINS and the information they offer may not meet requirements for current best practices. Parents are invited to research any of this information but may want to consult their early interventionist before using it.
