Child Services (Prevention or Early Intervention)
ECCP®'s Child-Specific service is focused on one child, who may be having social, emotional, or behavioral difficulties. The service facilitates the partnership between the family and educators/caregivers and aims to build their capacity in order to better meet the needs of a particular child. This is done through individual strategies to be used with the child, environmental enhancement and relationship building.
Who Can Make a Referral?
Referrals for Child-Specific services can be made by a variety of people including parents, community providers, teachers, or directors who have related concerns about a child ages birth to five.
Reasons to Refer
A child who may be experiencing anxiety, behavioral challenges (e.g., biting, hitting, running away, etc.), has difficulty with attention, poor social skills, or is at risk of suspension or expulsion from their childcare setting may be referred. A child may also be referred if they are experiencing a stressful event such as the birth of a sibling, parental separation, loss of a family member, or a community stressor such as a storm, flood, etc.
