We remind you that only you can determine whether the quality of care is appropriate for your child.

The Special Needs Referral Program provides assistance in locating child care or other community resources for families with children with a developmental disability or developmental delay. An enhanced referral service provides information about types of child care, licensing regulations and legal child care options and referrals to programs with confirmed openings. Child care programs may also be eligible to receive an equipment loan for children with special needs while in their care.
