Mission Statement

Our mission is to advance the quality of life for all children ages birth to three years, focusing particularly on children who are either developmentally delayed or at risk of becoming delayed.

Our goal is to support parents and strengthen their ability to promote their child's development using the natural learning environments available to all children.

Description

There are two primary programs at Little Red School House. One is designed to meet the needs of children with disabilities and the other is designed to address the development of children who are at risk of becoming developmentally delayed.

Disability Program
This program addresses the needs of children under age 3 who have developmental delays and are eligible for early intervention services. Funding for this program is provided through school district contracts, Infant Toddler Early Intervention Program (ITEIP), and county Child Development Services.

Target Population: Children living in Snohomish County who are eligible e arly intervention services.

Program Services Include:

· Complete developmental assessment, testing, and evaluations

· Individual Occupational, Physical, and Speech Therapy

· Counseling Services

· Resource Coordination

· Parent Education: Current offerings are in the area of communication and sign language training.

· Socialization Group opportunities for children with Individualized Family Service Plans (IFSP) provided in partnership with Headstart, Everett Community College, and other community-based early childhood programs.

Outreach Program
This program addresses the needs of children who are at serious risk of falling behind in their development and of not being successful in school. Funding for this program is provided through United Way and other community grants and donations.

We are the only program in our county serving children in homeless shelters and transitional housing. We have further distinguished ourselves through our early intervention programs on the Tulalip Indian Reservation. We are located at the Tulalip Childcare where we screen children and meet with families who have concerns about their child's development. We work in close association with the Tulalip Early Learning Committee and Beda?chelh, (formerly Indian Child Welfare) and are developing ways to make our services better known and more accessible to all parents on the reservation.

Target Population: Children at risk of development delays due to cultural differences, poverty, abuse, neglect, and homelessness.

Program Services Include:

· Developmental Screening and Evaluation

· Parent Consultation and Education

· Counseling

· Referral Services

· Access to services for children with developmental delays as needed

· Play and Socialization Group opportunities in homeless shelters, at the Tulalip Childcare, and at Children's Village. Additional opportunities are available through partnerships with Everett Community College and Early Headstart.
