Parents and Caregivers

We recognize that parents are the single most important influence in their child’s life.

Your involvement and participation is important in planning and implementing your child’s program.  Together with parents and educators, our Resource Consultants will develop recommendations and goals based on your child's developmental needs and the priorities of your family. 

Referrals to Exploration and Intensive Services

Parental consultation and consent is required for these levels of service.
