ADA & After School and Daycare Programs for children with disabilities

Tuesday, August 17, 2010


Parents of children with disabilities are often faced with limited choices when it comes to locating appropriate after school and daycare programs to meet the needs of their children. Many daycare and after school providers are reticent about accepting children with disabilities into their programs based on the fear that they are not able to provide the child with the services that they need, they don't have the "specialized " staff that may be needed, unfounded fear that the cost of serving a child with a disability is too great or a general bias against serving individuals with disabilities. Join our speakers as they discuss best practices in day care and after school programs for serving children with disabilities and resources that are available to assist providers and parents.
