We are here to identify your child’s strengths and needs and to create a family-centered plan to address those needs, at no cost to you.

 

Your team

Will identify your child’s strengths and needs. This team will include:

 

  • You
  • A Family Service Coordinator.
  • Certified and licensed Child Development Center professionals.
  • Anyone else you wish to include, such as other family members, your child’s doctor, and/or professionals from other agencies.

 

Any time you have questions or concerns, please let us know. Your comfort, understanding of the process, and goals are important to providing the best services for your child and family.

 

The process

Step 1: Evaluation

The evaluation is designed to be relaxed and fun. Your child will participate in a variety of play activities that relate to each area of development. We would like to complete the evaluation in your home, which is probably the most familiar place to your child. However, if you are not comfortable with that, we will work with you to find another setting for the evaluation.

 

Step 2: Routines Based Interview (RBI)

The Routines Based Interview will allow us to visit with you about your family’s daily routines, which are important to your child’s development, as well as any specific concerns you may have.

 

Step 3: Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP)

Your team, including you, will gather to talk about the results of the evaluation and the Routines Based Interview. If your child shows a need for services, then we will work with you to create a plan that focuses on your child’s individual needs as well as the needs of your entire family. This type of planning is the best way to enhance your child’s development.

 

Step 4: Start of Family-Centered Services

Your Family Service Coordinator will help you find and use resources at the Child Development Center and other community agencies to meet your child’s needs. Your Family Service Coordinator will support you as you continue to play the important role of your child’s first teacher.
