Services may be provided in-home, via community-based location depending on the unique needs of the family and child’s age. Usually, children under eighteen months of age are served in-home by a therapist. Children who are between the ages of eighteen months and three years typically attend a class offered in collaboration with Early Head Start. The classroom environment consists of developmentally appropriate individual and group activities or therapy services.
We are so grateful to have Shaun and Amber as part of Julia’s team. We hold them dearly in our hearts. I couldn’t be happier. Their encouragement and letting me know what I’m doing well is so helpful.
SPARC believes parents and families are a valuable part of our program. The needs of the family are assessed and addressed in order to optimize your child’s success. Ongoing participation is encouraged as it helps us better understand the needs of your child.
Parents and staff will create an Individual Family Service Plan (IFSP). This plan outlines the concerns expressed by parents and family members and identifies the child’s specific needs related to their development.
A Family Resources Coordinator will help families connect to other community and state programs and services for families to best support them on this journey. When a child turns three years of age, staff help transition children to preschool services, typically provided by the child’s local school district.
