TRINITY'S EARLY CHILDHOOD & FAMILY SUPPORT SERVICES

Our staff takes the time to address the needs of the entire family. We Come To You. Call us at 518-694-4510 for more information, or to schedule an appointment.

Our Early Childhood and Family Support Services Department is located at the Capital South Campus Center and works with children from 0-5 years old, and their families, in the home using play in the form of education, language, cognitive, fine and gross motor and personal-social skills, to assess the child’s development.  If you are an individual living at home who has a developmental disability, and are in need of assistive technology or environmental modification, we can help with assistive modifications.

Play Is A Child's Work

Children learn educational, language, cognitive, fine and gross motor and personal-social development skills during play.  Trinity Alliance staff will come to you with toys, games and books and interact with the child, while  encouraging the parents and/or guardians to join in the play. Parents are involved during home visits and are taught the skills to continue this play beyond the 90-minute educational visiting period. You can also enroll in our FREE early childhood language program, Race to 10,000!  

Family Reimbursement

Trinity Alliance provides reimbursement for goods and services, when no other means of funding is available, for families who care for a family member at home who has a developmental disability.  This program is designed to meet the needs of individuals and his/her family, while helping to keep the family unit together in the home. 

Assistive Technology & Environmental Modifications

Trinity Alliance provides assistance to those who can benefit from modifications to increase or maintain an individual’s ability to live with independence.  If you are an individual living at home who has a       developmental disability, and are in need of assistive technology or environmental modification, Trinity Alliance can help.

These aids can include:

  • Aids, controls, appliances, or supplies (either communication or adaptive);
  • Augmentative communication aids and devices;
  • Vehicle modifications; and
  • Physical adaptations to the home, such as ramps, lifts and bathroom modifications.
