For our opening this morning, we had a guest speaker, Dawn Heatwole, a Parent Partner from the WV Birth to Three program. She spoke on the free services provided through the WV Department of Health and Human Resources.
Children who are suspected of having or being at significant risk of developmental delay receive a multi-disciplinary evaluation to determine eligibility for the WV Birth to Three Program. With participation of the family, an Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP) is developed for each child's family based upon the strength and abilities of the child and shaped by the concerns and priorities of the family. Services and supports listed on the plan are targeted to promote the child's development as well as to support the ability of the family and other care givers to address the special needs of their child.
If you are interested in these services or have any questions, contact the Regional Administrative Unit, RESA VIII in Martinsburg, WV at 304-267-3595 or toll free
A special thank you to Dawn for coming today and speaking with us. Also thank you for sharing your personal testimony of how God has blessed you and your family.
