CART is here for behavioral support!


Is your child (or a friend's child) in need of behavioral support? Are you in danger of losing the childcare setting for your child because of challenging behaviors? The Childcare Alliance Response Team (CART) could be of enormous help!

CART provides behavioral support for children ages birth to five who are experiencing challenging behaviors in a childcare setting and are not identified as having special education needs. CART services are provided at NO COST to the family or the childcare programs.

Services include:

  • General education interventions/strategies
  • Collaborative development of individual plans
  • Referral to other resources as necessary

Because CART is a Benton, Cedar, Linn, Johnson, Jones, and Tama County Early Childhood Iowa Grant funded program, referrals to this program are limited only to those counties.

Parents or guardians seeking help from the CART program can call Grant Wood AEA at 319-399-6746 or fill out the referral form on this page.
