Special Needs Resource Funding is used primarily to purchase the services of Resource Consultants to support the inclusion of children with special needs in Licensed Child Care Programs. Resource Consultants assist Child Care Program staff in the assessment of children with special needs; in the preparation of individual program plans for the children; in the provision of support to the child's regular caregiver in developing program plans for the children; and in the provision of support to the child's regular caregiver in developing and carrying out daily activities in accordance with these plans. To assist the individual child within the larger group, Resource Consultants may work with several children in more than one location; they also work with parents to ensure a consistent expectation and approach for the child.

Special Needs Resource Funding may also be used to purchase specialized toys and equipment in support of an individual child's program plan.

Special Needs Resources are available though:
