Supporting Families and Young Children Across Kansas
If your child is less than three years old and is experiencing developmental delays or disabilities, then the Infant Toddler programs at the Center of Community Supports from Greenbush can help you. Also known as tiny-K, these are family-centered early intervention programs with the primary purpose of helping families whose young children need early developmental support. Screenings are free and based on your child’s age. If you ever have any question on your child’s development, it’s recommended to opt for the screening as there is no obligation for services even after the screening.
There are three tiny-K Infant Toddler Networks that are part of the Greenbush family of programs: Southeast Kansas Birth to Three, REACH tiny-K, and Leavenworth County Infant Toddler Services. Greenbush also partners with several other networks to provide administrative support and resources.
