Our Special Needs Database
Our special needs database is meant to be an educational tool. So often we talk or hear about children with special placement needs, but what does this really mean?
Our special needs database is designed to touch on some basic information concerning a variety of special needs so as to build the foundation of acceptance and understanding that children with special placement needs require.
This resource is by no means intended as a substitute for a doctor's advice or diagnosis. Any concerns you may have with regard to your child's health and development should be discussed with a professional in an appropriate field.Ä
