PACT now offers a newly developed nurse consultation service to support child care providers caring for children with developmental disabilities and special healthcare needs.
This collaborative model is designed to support child care providers based in Baltimore City and County with on-site training sessions led by a registered nurse and an expert child care teacher in:
- Mealtime strategies for children with special diets or feeding tubes
- Equipment training (orthotics, walkers, feeding pumps, medical monitors)
- Recognizing and planning for sudden breathing problems in children
- Emergency plan implementation (seizure and asthma action plans)
This training is provided with support from the Maryland Developmental Disabilities Council.
