Children’s Program

Growing and Learning, together

UCP’s Children’s Program provides a wide range of services specifically designed to promote the development and learning of children with special needs from birth to five years of age. Many of these services are offered in an integrated setting, where children with and without disabilities can learn together.

These early intervention services provided by UCP build a foundation for future learning by focusing on all areas of development, including cognitive, communication, fine motor, large motor, self-help skills, and social-emotional development.

Services are provided where the child and family naturally spend time, i.e. in the family’s home, at the place where the child receives childcare services, and other locations in the community. Integrated preschool and outpatient therapies are also provided at UCP’s on-site facility located in St. Joseph, Missouri.
