RCCDC provides screenings and ongoing assessments of children to identify any need for special services. The results of screening may indicate a need for follow up and we may refer your child for further evaluation. Children may have special needs in the areas of speech, language, learning, hearing, vision, behavior, motor development (involving large or small muscles), social or emotional health, and mental health and be enrolled in Head Start or Early Head Start.
If you believe your child has a special need, please tell your Teacher, Family Advocate, or Center Director about your concerns. Parents are always involved in the referral, evaluation, and goal setting process for their child. Staff members work closely with families and community agencies to provide services to meet the special needs of children.
