Description:

Early Childhood Treatment and Consultation Services provides home-based
and community support to address child behavior needs. Childcare providers are
supported in their mission to educate and develop children with special needs.
The program strengthens childcare teachers’ ability to work more effectively
with children experiencing emotional, developmental, medical, and physical difficulties as well as builds the capacity of the childcare provider to enroll and provide services for children with special needs.


Group training and individual consultation are provided to childcare teachers
on behavioral interventions, child development and referral options. This
strength-based program is tailored to meet the needs of the children in the care of the childcare provider.


There is no cost to the childcare provider or to the children in their care. All
services are Step-up-to-Quality approved and Step-up-to-Quality credits are
available for group training. Bilingual services are available.
