As a response to the severe cuts to funding for children living with disabilities, Mosaic developed Kindervention in 2009.
It's a unique program designed to take the best practices of early intervention and move them into a small group setting in which typically developing children and children with developmental delays/disabilities are able to play and learn together.
Kindervention differs from traditional child care in that trained, early childhood educators with coaching from Mosaics Early Intervention Team make up the teaching staff at the program.
Mosaic team develops individualized strategies for children designed to assist the child in reaching developmental milestones and age-appropriate socialization.
Parents are encouraged to volunteer in the program, and a themed curriculum mirrors a typical preschool classroom so that children can learn to move from one activity to another according to a schedule.
Mosaic Kindervention Open House September 6, 2012
Kindervention is a program where children strengthen their skills in an inclusive environment for children with disabilities and developmental delays. Children will not only learn from the instructor, but learn from each other.
