Know the Law About The Americans with Disabilities Act and Child Care in California

“The ADA prohibits providers from excluding people because of their disabilities.  It prohibits admissions policies that screen out or tend to screen out persons with disabilities.  A provider has to assess case-by-case what accommodation a child with a disability needs to be integrated into the provider’s program. Once the provider knows what is needed, the provider must assess whether reasonable accommodations can be made to include the child.  The U.S. Department of Justice, Civil Rights Division’s Commonly Asked Questions About Child Care Centers and the Americans with Disabilities Act, gives examples of reasonable accommodations of specific disabilities.” Childcarelaw.org

If you are a child care provider, and need support in caring for children with disabilities, call Resource and Referral at (707) 863-3950 ext. 752. PLUS, we have many workshops on the topic of inclusion. Including a child with special needs in your environment not only helps that child, but also every single child that you care for each day.

A Big Thank You was in Order

We stopped by Vacaville Target to present a token of gratitude to the store, and also one of it’s awesome employees. He was nominated by the store to receive a gift, and then he was asked to nominate a local charity as the recipient of a gift. He nominated us!
Thank you, Vacaville Target and Dane Kizer! We truly appreciate your generous gift.

Milestones Matter

Milestones matter! Track your child’s milestones from age 2 months to 5 years with CDC’s easy-to-use illustrated checklists; get tips from CDC for encouraging your child’s development; and find out what to do if you are ever concerned about how your child is developing.

From birth to age 5, your child should reach milestones in how he or she plays, learns, speaks, acts, and moves. Photos and videos in this app illustrate each milestone and make tracking them for your child easy and fun!

The use of this app is not a substitute for the use of validated, standardized developmental screening tools as recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics.
