Children with Special Needs

Head Start and Early Head Start coordinates and integrates services such as special education, medical care, and speech therapy.  Children may be referred to a professional for diagnosis or assistance when a Parent or Teacher has concerns.  Head Start ensures that all activities and experiences are designed to meet the individual differences and needs of all children.

Head Start and Early Head Start works to anticipate and understand a child’s behavior and development.  In partnership with parents extensive resources are devoted to help everyone in the child’s life to respond in a ways that are more likely to enhance the child’s development.

Child Physical and Dental Health

IHSD’s commitment to wellness embraces a comprehensive vision of health for children, families, and staff. Collaboration among families, staff, and health professionals, helps ensure that all child health and developmental concerns are identified and children and families are linked to an ongoing source of care to meet their basic health needs.

IHSD staff will assist with any issues requiring follow up based on medical or dental exams or screenings.

Nutritious Meals

Children are served breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snacks (full & Part-day programs) to meet their daily nutritional needs. The menus are planned to consider nutrition, personal and cultural preferences as well as the introduction of healthy foods which broaden the child’s food experiences. Meals are served family style.
