Region VI Right Track Program and the James River Special Education Cooperative are offering the Right Track program. The program is for families with children who are the ages of birth through two years. This age is targeted as children experience their greatest level of growth and development during the first three years of their life. Right Track provides a resource to the family so their child receives the best start in physical, social, emotional and intellectual development. Right Track offers the following:
Children: Home visits to children from birth through 2 years of age, developmental screenings and activities to enrich a child’s development
Community: Connections with community resources; partnerships with agencies to coordinate services for families and children; and referrals to local, state and national organizations for educational and health information as well as support
Families: Information on a child’s growth and development; information on various childhood concerns such as sleep, nutrition and the managing of behavior; support to the parents as the child’s first teachers; and information and resources to help families make informed choices about programs and services.
To learn more about Right Track or to make a referral, contact Keith Gustafson at 701-201-0061.
People who know of children ages 3-5 who seem to not be developing or functioning at the same level of their peers are asked contact the James River Special Education Cooperative in Jamestown at 701-252-3376, which is the central referral point for children in that age group.
