JCCEO Disabilities/Mental Health
JCCEO Disability/Mental Health serves children and families with significant disabilities and/or special needs. A child with a disability often learns more readily in a group with other non-disabled children. All children with disabilities or social-emotional concerns are placed in classrooms with other Early Head Start or Head Start children. Other children in the classroom are enriched by having a child with special needs in their class. Children with disabilities and their families receive the full range of Head Start services, along with special services related to the area of concern. Head Start and Early Head Start supports the mental health of all children. The social and emotional well-being of children, families, and staff is essential to school readiness. The Disability/Mental Health Manager and staff will conduct training and informational sessions for families with children with significant disabilities and/or special needs. It is our GOAL and purpose to provide an essential foundation of stability that supports ALL aspects of development.
JCCEO Head Start and Early Head Start staff members also work closely with other community agencies to provide services to meet the needs of all children, including those with disabilities.
