Providing Everything You Need
Americans With Disabilities Act
Does the Americans with Disabilities Act or ADA apply to child c are centers? -
A: Yes. Privately-run child care centers -- like other public accommodations such as private schools, recreation centers, restaurants, hotels, movie theaters, and banks -- must comply with title III of the ADA. Child care services provided by government agencies, such as Head Start, summer programs, and extended school day programs, must comply with title II of the ADA. Both titles apply to a child care center's interactions with the children, parents, guardians, and potential customers that it serves.
Early Development Network
The Early Development Network (EDN) is a program designed to provide services for children age birth to three that have been verified with a type of delay in their development or a disability. The program is provided at no cost to families. Each family that is referred to our program is assigned a Services Coordinator that will assist the family through the assessment process, connect the family to professionals that can address the child’s developmental concerns and link the family with community resources that may be helpful to the child or family.
If you have concerns about a child’s development such as speech, gross motor (sitting, crawling, or walking), fine motor (skills with hands or feeding), hearing, vision, or other concerns of development and would like to make a referral, please contact our staff at 402-436-1920. If you do not reside in the Lincoln Public Schools district, but still would like to have your child evaluated we would be happy to take your referral and direct it on to the correct agency or you can contact Nebraska Child Find at 1-888-806-6287.
Are you concerned about how your child plays, speaks, learns, acts, or moves?
