The Preschool Assessment & Consultation Program (PACP) is offered through Children’s Centre Thunder Bay, and is designed to assist licensed childcare programs in supporting children with significant and complex developmental and behavioural difficulties.
The goal of the PACP is to help childcare programs better understand and meet the needs of these children, which is achieved through a process involving observation, consultation, and recommendations for intervention, as well as referrals to other community resources, if necessary. No mental health treatment is provided directly through this service. The PACP is available not only for individualized support, focusing on a single child, but can also be used to support childcare programs at a more general level.
Referrals are accepted through licensed childcare providers, with parental consent. Parents interested in having these services provided for their child may contact their childcare provider.
