Program Description:

The Children’s Center at Montclair State University has brought together under one roof three formerly independent programs—a child care center, an early intervention program, and a program for children with severe communication disorders, including autism. Today their inclusive classrooms serve children with special needs and typically developing children side by side.Their early intervention component provides services to families at home and in the infant/toddler classrooms through a team that includes speech and language pathologists, Inclusion/Special Needs special educators, child development specialists, a nurse, and occupational and physical therapists. From infancy through five years, children with special needs participate in every classroom where, in addition to the teaching staff, an expert team of certified and/or licensed personnel supports their development.
