Children With Special Needs, Additional Information Form

Thank you for your interest in our YMCA School Age Child Care and Camp Programs. We are committed to creating an environment where all children thrive, including children with special needs. A child with special needs is one whom it has been determined requires special attention and/or accommodation that other children in a group setting do not require. These determinations may be based on medical, physical, cognitive, or behavioral challenges that the child may face. Our program specializes in group child care and is an inclusive school age program that recognizes each child’s uniqueness. We are an independent program separate from the unified school district, do not have access to school resources or staff during our program hours, and operate under separate regulations. Our desire is to work with every family so that their child succeeds in our program. We will make reasonable accommodations in our program toward that goal, but we must note that there are some circumstances where we cannot effectively meet the needs of a child.

Questions Yes No

Thank you for sharing information about your child. This form is just the beginning of an ongoing dialogue about your child’s needs. A Program Director will contact you to review and if deemed necessary schedule an in-person meeting. We are committed to making a timely determination regarding enrollment and participation. Please allow a minimum of 10 working days for this process.

Please provide any documentation regarding your child’s special needs that may help better equip us to make our determination. NOTE: This may include documents such as an IEP or similar analysis but is not required. We do NOT wish to receive any medical records.
