What’s the difference between the State’s early intervention program and yours?
The State’s program is a social service that focuses on helping the families understand all available resources. Our Family Infant Program helps the family, but we’re also looking at the educational impact on the child and in making sure parents have the skills to help their child learn and develop.
Will my child have a chance to participate in athletics at Fanwood?
Absolutely. Athletics is one area that allows deaf children to compete on a level playing field with other children. We field competitive teams in soccer, volleyball and basketball and track.
