The Impact of Early Intervention

Early Intervention provides support and services to families with a young child – up to school age – who is developing more slowly than other children the same age. Early Intervention benefits more than just the children and families involved with the program. It also benefits the community and the economy. Every $1 invested in Early Intervention creates a return of at least $7 in lower spending on public and health services throughout the child's whole life. The earlier the investment is made, the higher the return will be, because the critical years for developing a healthy brain are birth to five years.

How you can make a difference

The Behavioural Intervention program and the KEYSS program are supported through the continued generosity of the Kings County Children's Foundation. To fully fund our valued programs, our Board of Directors must raise funds in Kings County and the District of West Hants. We gratefully accept donations from businesses, organizations, and community members.

To make a tax deductible donation, please contact VCDA. 

We want to recognize and thank all those community organizations, Foundations 
and members who support our association and their community.
