Working to support your child’s development involves a partnership of Parents, Teachers/Caregivers, Resource Consultants, and at times other professionals collaborating together to promote your child’s strengths and reach their goals.
The two primary functions of the Resource Consultant are:
- To support licensed early learning and care programs in their work to include all children and to monitor and promote optimum development for children with any special need.
- To help the family access services within our community and obtain early intervention for their child.
The role of the Resource Consultant may vary depending upon the wants and needs of each family, child, and teachers/caregivers.
Transition to School
KWH follows the transition to school protocol that has been developed by the Special Needs Resourcing (SNR) Collaborative and the school boards within the Region of Waterloo. Your Resource Consultant will discuss and help you prepare for this process as the time approaches for your child to enter primary school.
