Finding Child Care for Children with Special Needs

Finding a child care program for a child with special needs may take extra time and patience. You might start by calling the state and national agencies responsible for children with special needs to receive local contacts. You can also contact your local school district and early intervention program for resources and assistance. Of course, other families with children with special needs can be a great help to you. Resource & Referral can help you locate a child care provider that has experience and training in Special Needs care. Finally, remember that the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibit child care providers from denying services to any child with a disability.
