The Leavenworth County TINY-K Program offers early intervention services for families with young children birth to three years old. Services are available from a variety of professional disciplines, which include family training and counseling, family service coordination, social work, special instruction, speech/language therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy, nutrition screening, and vision screening. Graduate students from various disciplines may participate. TINY-K provides home-based, community-based, and/or transitional support at no cost to families.
The TINY-K Program follows federal, state, and local guidelines that mandate services must be family focused and family directed. We view the infant-toddler as an active learner and the parents the primary teachers of their child. Families make many decisions related to their child. The staff assists families in this process by providing information in a variety of forms, so that families may make informed decisions. Decisions are often made in the areas of speech and language, motor, self-help, cognition, social/emotional development, and hearing. We believe the family is the ultimate decision-maker with respect to themselves and their child.
