Position Statements and Guidelines 

AAIMHI routinely reviews and updates Position Statements and Guidelines to assist families and professionals to keep the experiences and needs of infants in mind. Up until the time a new position is published, the documents on our website represent AAIMHI’s current guidelines.

Individuals are encouraged to obtain appropriate professional advice in their local area relevant to their particular circumstances. AAIMHI is not able to provide individual advice in these matters.
