FCESS services are provided in a child’s natural environment. This means any place where young children live, work and play. This includes, but is not limited to, your home, a child care setting, a park, and/or the grocery store and more.
You may have heard other families talk about their child having therapy 3 times a week at a clinic or hospital. This is called a “medical” model of treatment and is very different from the services you will receive through FCESS. One of the goals of FCESS is to show you, the parent, ways to best meet the developmental needs of your child. FCESS will combine their skills with your knowledge of who your child is and how your family works, and share ways to implement support for your child’s developmental needs into your daily routine.
