Children’s Services Committee Meetings

Children’s Services Committee: Chairpersons – Nellie Velez,  Edie Weber, Gina Feliciano

EARLY INTERVENTION AND SPECIAL EDUCATION – A free, appropriate education is an entitlement for all children with developmental disabilities from birth through age twenty-one. Early intervention, preschool education and specialized educational strategies throughout the school years can help children to maximize their potential. Some children do better in self-contained classrooms while others benefit from an “inclusionary” approach. Many of these specialized services are provided by not-for-profit agencies when local school districts do not have the needed educational resources.

The Children’s Services Committee members include parents and non-for-profit providers that coordinate and collaborate together to provide advocacy and support for children with developmental disabilities.  The committee is looking to recruit active members to identify issues and improve outcomes for children with developmental disabilities.
