Special Needs and Accommodations

At Moss Street Children's Center, we believe that inclusion of children of differing abilities enriches the experiences of all children. We will take appropriate action if any child or family member needs accommodations to ensure that our services are accessible to them.

Moss Street currently serves as a placement site for children receiving Early Childhood Intervention Services. If the Moss Street Children’s Center staff has concerns about the development of a child enrolled at Moss Street, parents will be informed and given referral information by the lead teacher in their child’s classroom. For children in the preschool, an Early Childhood CARES consultant can visit the child at Moss Street. All assessment and intervention services are provided in a manner that emphasizes inclusion and full integration within the curriculum, activities, and classroom procedures.

Regular teaching staff will participate in the implementation of individualized family service plans within the context of the Moss Street program philosophy. Consultants and classroom aides support Moss Street staff in enhancing knowledge, skills, and abilities for meeting the unique needs of all children.
