The focus of this initiative is families with children between three and five years of age. These families often experience a gap in services and connection to resources. Through this initiative, Developmental Pathways aims to create a continuous transition to the next phase of care.

Activities

Parent and Child Image

Projects for the 3+ Initiative directly assist caregivers, preschools, community agencies, businesses, and childcare centers so that they can provide support for children with developmental disabilities/delays.

  • Host an online parent community
  • Provide parent training
  • Partner with organizations and businesses to build an inclusive community
  • Provide training to preschools and early childhood centers
Our goal is full inclusion and access to community resources for children three to five years of age. For questions, contact the Community Line at 303-858-2255.
