Does My Child Need a Social Worker?
In Early Intervention Support, the role of a social worker is to provide a variety of services geared to the special needs of children and their families. In this role, the social worker acts as an adjunct to evaluators and therapists.
Services provided may include, but are not limited to:
- Consultation in areas of parent and child interaction, family dynamics, mental health, domestic violence, and crisis intervention.
- Consultation with Early Intervention therapists related to infant and toddler development and family needs.
