The Infant and Toddler/Part C Program support to families when there is a question about the child’s development. We encourage families and other caregivers to help the child throughout the day. We make sure the caregivers have the materials and information they need to do this. We pull together teams of professionals to join the family in solving problems and identifying learning opportunities. Finally we make sure the family is never alone in the process. We help the family identify who they already know who can help, we make sure the family has a service coordinator, and we have a team of professionals to help.
