Family Support Network for Ages 0 - 3

The Family Support Network (FSN) helps to meet the needs of families with children, birth to 3, with developmental delays or disabilities in Maryland. Each local FSN provides information to families regarding information community services; refers families to local support and advocacy groups; provides opportunities for families to network and share ideas and experiences; and helps to link “experienced” parents to parents of newly identified children with similar special needs. The Family Support Network works closely with the Calvert County Infant and Toddlers Program.

Preschool Partners for ages 3 - 5

To help support families when children transition from the Infants and Toddlers Program (ITP) to the Local School System (LSS) preschool special education program or other community-based early child-hood setting, the Maryland State Department Of Education (MSDE) has made funding available to local ITPs to expand services provided through the local Family Support Network (FSN). Preschool Partners provides ongoing support to families of children ages 3 through 5, maintaining the connections with the local ITP, as well as fostering new connections among families, preschool programs, and community services.
