ICCD provides an array of supportive services to children, according to their individual needs. These services include physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy (in English and Spanish), counseling, consultation and nursing services. A multi-lingual staff of social workers provides many family-oriented services as well. 

We believe that our therapy programs must support the work being done in the classroom and encourage the learning of skills desired by parents. Therapists use their specialized knowledge to help children directly in therapy and to assist parents, teachers and each other in helping children learn. 

How Services Are Provided 
Children can receive therapy services in a number of different ways according to their needs and the requirements of their Individual Educational Plan ("the IEP"). Many children are seen on a one-on-one basis with the therapist while others are seen in small groups of one or two children. Some children have a combination of individual time with the therapist and a session in a small group. Therapy is "portable"! Children can be seen for therapy in the classroom, a special treatment room, on the playground, etc. 

The Team 
Therapists, Psychologists, Social Workers and Teachers meet regularly to review a child's progress, discuss strategies for helping that child and plan the next aspect of the child's program. These "multidisciplinary teams" ensure that a coordinated and appropriate program is provided for each child. 

Parents And Therapy 
Parents are highly encouraged to get to know their child's therapist(s) and to see their children in therapy.  Visits are always welcomed as are phone calls and notes. 

Therapists want to know from You what you would like your child to learn and your concerns about your child.  Parents and therapists together should decide what will be worked on in therapy and what you can do at home to help. 

And More For You 
Our Social Work Department offers a number of exciting opportunities for parents to meet together.  Programs offered include workshops on child development and other topics of interest to parents, parent effectiveness training and discussion groups.  In addition, parents and other family members are invited to the many special events planned throughout the year.  At any time, our social workers are available to meet with you to discuss issues of concern to you.
