To promote the importance of families in guiding the
services of children with special needs, the North Carolina Infant-Toddler
Program believes that:
- A child develops best if viewed first as a child, rather

- Children and families grow and develop, so services should
change to meet their needs and choices.
- As children are best supported within the family, the family
is best supported within the community.
- Children with special needs are best served in settings that
are used by all children.
- Family beliefs and values are important, as is the cultural
(religious, ethnic, and racial) background of the family.
- Teamwork among families and service providers guides
