Early childhood special education offers evaluations to families at no cost in the areas of infant and toddler assessment, developmental skills, speech and language, hearing and vision, and fine and gross motor skills.
Early development services coordination provides a central point of contact for families with children, birth to three years, with disabilities or developmental delays. A service coordinator is assigned to each family to ensure they get the help they need as they are linked with developmental evaluations through the schools, Nebraska Health and Human Services programs, health resources, parent-to-parent support, etc.
Services in the natural environment provided for children birth to age three in a location where the child normally is or where the child' parents would like him/her to be; staff work with parents as their coach, helping them to become their child's teacher.
Community based services for children ages three to five are provided in community preschools, child care centers, or wherever the child spends his/her day. A team approach is used to develop speech and language, expand vocabulary, and refine gross and fine motor skills as well as emphasizing socialization.
