Mental Health & Disabilities
Stacia Ponce, Mental Health & Disabilities Coordinator
Child Development programs enroll children with disabilities and/or other special needs. We work closely with Special Services to provide quality inclusion opportunities to children with varying abilities and needs. All children are screened as they enter the program to ensure any special needs are identified and addressed as soon as possible. If parent have concerns about their child’s growth, development and/or behavior, they are encouraged to share those concerns with the Teacher, Home Visitor, or Disabilities/Mental Health Coordinator. The program will assist in the identification of any possible issues and will work to connect and refer parents to the appropriate services and resources to address their needs.
