The And Friends program offers a unique educational experience for typically developing children that encourages academic, motor and social/emotional development in an inclusion setting that promotes compassion and understanding for individuals with special needs.
Challenged Child and Friends Early Intervention Treatment Program
To respond to the primary program focus of service and outreach to children with developmental delays, disabilities or at-risk characteristics, the agency uses the following criteria and/or screening factors to make placement in the early intervention treatment program:
A child with developmental delay, as per physician referral, or with developmental or therapy evaluations or current treatment that indicates developmental delay or at-risk characteristics exist that require therapeutic, medical or adaptive interventions.
A child with a health condition that requires ongoing monitoring by a nurse or clinical treatments such as, but not limited to, respiratory treatments, insulin or other injections of medication, blood level monitoring, seizure monitoring/response, catheterization, feeding by tube or specified adaptive feeding, colostomy management, etc.
A child that is referred by a community source or family screening/intake information that identifies social-emotional-behavioral characteristics that are having a negative impact on developmental progress or that requires adaptive strategies and intervention by a classroom teaching team.
