Positive early experiences are essential prerequisites for later success in school, the workplace, and the community. Services to young children who have or are at risk for developmental delays have been shown to positively impact outcomes across developmental domains, including health, language and communication, cognitive development, and social/emotional development. Families benefit from intervention services by being able to better meet their children’s special needs from an early age and throughout their lives.
This collection of resources and tools are focused on child development and related services to help your child succeed and grow across environments. “Related Services” refers to any services that help a child gain independence with general or special education. Here is a list of related services your child might benefit from having from early childhood through high school.
If your student has an Individualized Education Plan (IEP), they may already be receiving many of these services. Your student may benefit from additional services outside of school hours. Your child’s pediatrician can be a significant resource when you have questions and concerns about your child’s health. It is important to have open communication and talk to them immediately, rather than later. Do not hesitate to ask your pediatrician to conduct a routine developmental screening. Be prepared to discuss examples of developmental milestones your child may or may not be meeting.
