Head Start recognizes the importance of providing mental health and psychological services to children of low income families to encourage their emotional and social development. A mental health professional is available to every Head Start center to provide mental health training for staff and parents to make them aware of the need for early attention to the special problems of children.
Children with disabilities and their families receive the full range of Head Start developmental services. In addition, staff members work closely with community agencies to provide services to meet the special needs of these children. A child can often learn more readily in a group with other children than in a separate group for children with disabilities.
