Rehabilitation and integration program for children (RIEDP)

The RIEDP program is for:

  • Children meeting a developmental delays diagnosis, i.e., children aged 0 to 5 with developmental delays in at least two areas of development.
  • Children who have been diagnosed with a language disorder. That is, children aged 0 to 13 with a diagnosed primary speech and/or language impairment (dysphasia) or diagnosed verbal dyspraxia* that results in significant and persistent communications disabilities.
  • Children with a diagnosed motor impairment, i.e., children and adolescents aged 0-17 with significant and persistent motor disabilities that stem from either congenital or trauma/illness-induced neurological or musculoskeletal issues, who require specialized rehabilitation services. These accidental causes could be a spinal cord injury (SCI), acute orthopedic injury, severe burns or traumatic brain injury (TBI).  These motor impairments thus require specialized rehabilitation services.

How do I access the services?

A rehabilitation/habilitation service request should be submitted by CISSS Outaouais workers or physicians and forwarded to the ID-PD-ASD program access point. Your request will be assessed based on your needs and the intensity of the services required. Next, you will be directed to the most appropriate program matching your needs and one or more professionals will be assigned to you.

With specialized rehabilitation services, parents are often required to be present and to participate in individual and group activities with their children.

A response plan, which can be either unidisciplinary (URP), or multidisciplinary (MRP), in the case of interdisciplinary work (IW), is implemented in order to clarify the intended objectives for each child receiving specialized rehabilitation services.

The adaptation/rehabilitation process has a start and an end, and is carried out through a service episode defined in the response plan. When the IW objectives are reviewed, the process flow is discussed with the parents and/or their children.
