Mental Health Services
Warren County Head Start supports our children and families’ mental and behavioral health needs through the services of a mental health consultant. This professional meets with staff concerning classroom management while also providing individual assessments for enrolled children and offering counseling for their parents.
Children with disabilities attend Head Start and Early Head Start in classrooms with their typically developing peers. All children entering Warren County Head Start/Early Head Start receive age appropriate screenings for speech, hearing, vision, physical and social/emotional development, and general health. If a concern arises with a child’s development, the family and Head Start staff will work together to provide/access all needed services.
With the consent of the parent, children are referred to their school districts Committee on Preschool Special Education (CPSE) or Early Intervention. The CPSE of each school district or Early Intervention is responsible for arranging evaluations of children at no cost to any parent.
Therapists will provide therapy to qualified children at Warren County Head Start. Enrolled children with disabilities can receive all their support services within their Warren County Head Start/Early Head Start classroom.
