Mental Health & Disabilities
Know me for my abilities, not my disability.
– Robert M. Hensel
All children are welcome at RWCFS Head Start and Early Head Start. We are committed to working with parents and other professionals to ensure that programming will accommodate children’s identified needs. We will:
- Screen children to see if they are where they should be developmentally
- Provide focused interventions to help children work to their highest abilities and help determine if a referral to Birth to Three programs or school district services are appropriate.
- Work with parents to make a referral to Birth to Three programs or local school districts to investigate whether or not children may be eligible for more support to meet their identified needs, if/when staff and parents think there may be a concern.
- Provide instruction that will support children in meeting their Individual Family Service Plan goals (if receiving Birth to three services), and Individual Education Plan goals (if receiving services form the school district).
