Children with developmental delays and learning disabilities have the same opportunity to be accepted in our program as their non-disabled same age peers. Children will participate and progress with the general education curriculum, to the appropriate extent and with manageable adequate accommodations. We encourage that parents make us aware of any delays their children may have. As well as provide us with an EIP or IFSP if one is available. Our goal is to work together to provide the best care for your child as possible. If needed, we may recommend parents to seek help from Maryland's Infant and Toddler's Program, Child Find, PG County Children's Resource Center, family counseling, etc. We will work with these and other outside services to ensure that the child is receiving the proper care for their need. A directory of community resources in Prince Georges County is kept current and available to families and staff at the front desk, and a link on this page.
Maryland's Infants and Toddlers Program
The Maryland Infants and Toddlers Program (MITP) directs a family-centered system of early intervention services for young children with developmental delays and disabilities— and their families. By recognizing each family's concerns and priorities and focusing on each child's strengths and needs, the MITP assists families of children with special needs during the first four years of the child's developmental journey. Support, information, and coordinated services in community settings are what families tell us to enhance their ability to manage the challenges and celebrate the gifts that each child has to offer.
