Individualized Family Service Plan
Once a child is determined eligible, a Family Resource Coordinator will bring the team (parents, therapists and any others the family desires) together to write a service plan. The service plan will include the goals of the family and the resource that will be used to achieve those goals.
Are you a mother or caregiver of a child with special needs? Join us and share information regarding resources and most importantly, camaraderie with others caring for children with special needs.
Toddler playroups offer developmentally appropriate, play-based learning experiences, including active play, music and art. Click here to see North Bend playgroup information.
Six months prior to a child's third birthday, the Family Resource Coordinator will provide the family with information regarding the choices in services available once a child turns three. This will be followed by a meeting with the local school district three months prior to the third birthday. At that time a transition plan will be written detailing the plan of transition.
