  • Identifying typical development
  • Identifying developmental challenges
  • Providing child-centered early childhood special education services that allow a child to ~
    • participate in typical early childhood activities to the best of their abilities
    • reach their full learning potential
    • prepare them for the next learning environment


If you have concerns about your child’s development between screenings, please contact our program.
