Head Start and Early Head Start are comprehensive child development programs which serve children from birth to age 5, pregnant women, and their families. Head Start programs strive to assure that children with disabilities are located and enrolled. A minimum of 10% of the funded enrollment slots must be made available to children with disabilities. Head Start provides a range of individualized services in the areas of education and early child development, medical, dental, mental health, nutrition, and parent involvement. In addition to the full range of services provided to all children, special services may be available for children with disabilities enrolled in the program including equipment and materials or modifications to existing facilities. These types of support services may be provided through Head Start, outside agencies, or combination of both. Head Start services are provided at no charge to eligible families.
