Specialized services for exceptional children
The Centers for Exceptional Children are certified as Developmental Day Centers. As such, both schools offer specialized services to children who are diagnosed with developmental delays or developmental disabilities, or have been identified with a diagnosed physical or cognitive condition which has a high probability of resulting in a developmental delay. Services are designed to meet the individualized needs of children in the following skill areas: self-help, physical (gross/fine motor), language and speech, and cognitive and psychosocial skills.
Children participate in daily activities outlined in a plan of care such as an Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP), Individualized Education Program (IEP), Person Centered Plan (PCP), or for children who are typically developing, an activity plan developed by The CFEC staff. Within the developmental day setting, children with special needs have opportunities for inclusion with children who are typically developing.
