Special Needs Resource Funding helps children with special needs that are in licensed child care. This funding pays for Resource Consultants and to buy special toys and equipment.

Resource Consultants assist child care staff by:

  • Assessing each child's specific special needs.
  • Creating individual program plans.
  • Carrying out daily activities according to the program plan.
  • Assisting a child with special needs in the larger group setting.
  • Working with parents to make sure they use the same approaches outside of child care.
  • Offering training opportunities for parents, child care providers and community groups.
