Request for Assistance: Family Child Care

The California Inclusion and Behavior Consultation (CIBC) Network offers on-site technical assistance (TA) to early care and education providers seeking to support the learning and development of children ages birth to five with special needs, disabilities, and/or challenging behaviors.

California Department of Education/Early Education and Support Division (CDE/EESD) affiliated providers, and those participating in their local Quality Counts California (QCC), are the recipients of the onsite technical assistance consultation services.

Currently family child care TA consultation services are being piloted in the following counties: Fresno, Kings, Madera, Mariposa, Merced, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Benito, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, northern San Diego and southern Los Angeles.

If you are a family child care provider, you may submit a TA request online or by phone. If you work for an agency that provides support to family child care providers, please discuss the CIBC Network services with the family child care provider prior to requesting services.
