In this section you will find resources you need to maximize the potential of your child allowing them to meaningfully participate in schools, work and community life. Look for help with early intervention, school special education and private options to help you navigate the world of education for your child with special needs.

Additional Resources at Dayton Children's

In addition to the resource center, we also offer the complete KidsHealth Library to help parents learn more about a specific condition. Information is given in easy-to-understand terms and in many cases available in Spanish as well as English.
