Preparing World-Class Students

Infants and Toddlers 
The first three years of a child’s life are the most critical time for learning.

A child's early years are full of excitement and change for every parent—a great balancing act between dreams and challenges. For families of young children with special needs, the challenges may seem overwhelming at times. Concerns about a child's development, or how a disability may affect his or her ability to grow and learn may overshadow those dreams for the future.


The Infants and Toddlers Program assists families of children with special needs during the first three years of the child's developmental journey. Support, information, and coordinated services in community settings are among the many aids provided to families to assist with the challenges and celebrate the gifts that each child has to offer.
