Children with Special Needs
Helping Children Reach their Greatest Potential
Children develop at different rates and in different ways. Some walk early, some late. Some talk right away; for others, it takes more time. All of this is normal.
But some children are born with disabilities and other special needs that are more serious
and that will affect how they grow and develop. For parents and caregivers, this can be confusing and scary. At First 5 California, we want to make sure parents and
caregivers know they are not alone in this process – and give them the information, resources and answers they need to make decisions and access services that will help
their young children.
