The Support Network
For Families in Early Intervention and Beyond
What is New Path?
New Path is a program of The Arc of Virginia. New Path provides understanding and compassionate peer to peer support to empower, educate and connect families through Early Intervention, transition from Part C to Part B or until other services in community have provided support to the family and child(ren).
New Path is a family support network to guide you on this new journey to help your child(ren) meet their developmental milestones. At times, this journey can become overwhelming but we are here to help. New Path is here to provide you with individualized resources and support that may improve your family’s quality of life.
Yes, we all grow at our own pace just as infants and toddlers. Early childhood development often follows predictable patterns known as milestones. These milestones are skills such as taking a first step, smiling for the first time, and waving “bye-bye.” Children reach milestones in how they play, learn, speak, act, and move (crawling, walking, etc.)
Some of our young children need a little extra help to reach certain developmental milestones. Because infants and toddlers grow and learn so quickly, it's important to get that extra help as early as possible if you or your child's doctor have any concerns about your child's development.
Why New Path?
Our Mission is to help those in need. New Path builds on families' commitment to learn and connect by providing support and resources. We strive to assist families in order to empower them to be the best teacher for their child. We invite you to come join us as you begin your New Path.
