Childcare Alliance Response Team (CART): Now Supporting Tama County

Childcare Alliance Response Team (CART) Now Supporting Tama County

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

Due to grant funding, CART referrals have been limited to Benton, Cedar, Linn, Johnson, Jones, and Washington County. However, recently Tama county has been added to this list.

To learn more about these services and find a referral form, go to the Grant Wood AEA website.
