Facing challenges together

What is early care?

Early Care is the set of interventions aimed at children aged 0 to 6, their family and the environment, with a view to responding as soon as possible to the transitory and ongoing needs of children with developmental disorders or at risk of suffering them. These interventions look at the child’s overall situation and are drawn up by a team of professionals with an interdisciplinary or transdisciplinary approach in mind.

Care is initiated at the request of the family by submitting an “Early Care Request”. This application form can be obtained at the centres of the Social Service Management, Hospitals, Health Centres and CEAS or downloaded from the Regional Council of Castile and León website.
