Kids Developmental Services Early Education Teams consist of families, preschools or child care centres, and professionals.
Your child’s team starts with you and the preschool or child care centre they attend. Each member of your child’s team has the same goal – to see your child develop to their full potential in a play-based, natural and developmentally appropriate environment.
Early Education Team members include children, their families, an Alberta certificated teacher; and may include early childhood education specialists such as speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, psychologists, family support specialists, behaviour consultants, developmental assistants, practicum students as well as the community preschool or child care centre your child attends. Our multidisciplinary as well as interdisciplinary approach, ensures that every member of your child’s team is familiar with your child’s goals and areas of growth, and can therefore support them in a variety of ways.
Programming will include classroom support and your child will have an Individualized Program Plan, written by an Alberta certificated teacher and supported by early education specialists.
Programming is based on the results of standardized assessments; parent and teacher anecdotal information; classroom observations; and educational goals that identify the diverse learning needs of your child.
We use a PASI-compliant Student Management Information System for small and mid-sized Alberta schools. SchoolCloud will be used for all the child’s registration, documentation, and programming requirements.
Kids Developmental Services uses uses secure software to create the child’s Individualized Program Plan. eLite by LearnStyle allows the document to be live and sharable, on a secure platform.
Kids Developmental Services will also be able to provide teams and education to families who have a contract with Family Support for Children with Disabilities (FSCD) if the child is accessing Program Unit Funding (PUF) through Kids Developmental Services.
