Child care providers often need support and information to include children with special needs and provide appropriate services in their child care settings. To assist providers, the Coalition’s Inclusion staff offers technical assistance, training, consultation, on-site observations/assessments and can provide support with lesson plans, curriculum, and environmental adaptations depending on the needs of the child.
Providers may also choose to call the Coalition’s Warm Line and speak to staff that can provide assistance and consultation regarding the inclusion of children with disabilities and special health care needs. Topics may include curriculum, strategies, child development, health, environmental adaptations, and information on relevant laws and regulations.
The Warm Line number (toll-free in Santa Rosa County) is (850) 516-2548.
