Wood Lane Special Needs Services
Since 1955, children, youth, and adult with developmental disabilities have counted on Wood Lane’s ability to provide excellent services and supports. Families created Wood Lane since no services were available before 1955. Since then, individuals and their families continue to be our focus in the provision of a wide array of services.
Wood Lane is a county agency that provides direct or contracted services on a daily basis. The Board provides educational, employment, recreation, sport, and other support services to children and adults of all ages, who have developmental disabilities. Similar to public schools, most services are provided at no cost and are supported by local, state, and federal funds.
Services are provided to residents of Wood County who meet the eligibility requirements.
Services for children are provided through Wood Lane’s Early Intervention Program (birth – 2 years) and Wood Lane School (3 years – 22 years).
The Early Intervention Program is an active member of the Wood County Early Childhood and the Ohio Help Me Grow System. The program is nationally recognized by CARF the Accreditation Commission and holds a three-year accreditation. The Early Intervention program serves families of children birth to three years of age with certain medical conditions, developmental delays and disabilities based on certain eligibility criteria.
