A variety of visitors such as Dental Hygienists, Dietitians, Speech & Language Therapists, and Behaviour Specialists attend Family Place programs to talk with parents about any concerns they may have about their family.
Some require appointments, but most can be approached in the playroom for an informal chat and to answer any questions you may have.
