Welcome to Including all Children and Families-Expanding Partnerships, an inclusive project for children and families in British Columbia, Canada.
Here, you’ll find information, materials, and resources geared toward caregivers, healthcare professionals, students, and educators of children who have been identified as vulnerable due to developmental delays, identified disabilities, or other challenges. We focus on assisting children from birth to age 12 years throughout BC, putting special focus on providing resources to families in rural, interior, and northern communities. We encourage you to explore our courses, questionnaires, research studies, materials, and online and other resources.
This project has been made possible through the assistance of Social Development Partnerships Program through the Government of Canada, and builds on our previous program, Social Inclusion Project for At-Risk Infants and Children1.

This website is part of the Social Development Partnerships Program (SDPP). SDPP, a federal program, is a partnership between the Human Early Learning Partnership (HELP) and the Infant Development Program of British Columbia (IDP). This website specifically addresses the subject of social inclusion for at-risk children and their families.
It has become quite clear to us (through numerous meetings with parents of at risk children) that there is a great need for a model for a seamless continuum of services that would provide the parents of at risk children and the professionals who work with them with what they need in order to better serve these children.
We have worked hard and collaborated with parents and professionals from a variety of disciplines (e.g. psychology, neonatology, developmental pediatrics and population health) in order to develop goals and objectives for this project.
