Mental Health & Disabilities
Stacia Ponce, Mental Health & Disabilities Coordinator
A child's social and emotional development is most influenced by their parents, caregivers, teachers, home visitors, and other important adults in their life.
Partnerships are instrumental in fostering healthy social and emotional growth. Together families and staff will connect to make important decisions about their child's developmental needs by using screening and assessment tools.
Child Development Programs strive to create inclusive environments for all children to participate with success. Programs support children with Individualized Family Service Plans (IFSP’s) and Individualized Education Programs (IEP’s) with individualized teaching approaches across all developmental domains.
When a child exhibits a need for more support, staff work collaboratively with program and parents to ensure streamlined connections to appropriate resources for further assessment and services.
