Early attention

The White Book on Early Care defines it as: “the set of interventions, aimed at the child population of 0-6 years, the family and the environment, which aim to respond as soon as possible to transitory needs or permanent problems that children with developmental disorders present or who are at risk of suffering from them. These interventions, which must consider the whole of the child, must be planned by a team of professionals with an interdisciplinary or transdisciplinary orientation “

Given the need to create a free Early Care Service for the population of Molina de Segura, this Program arises, within the Agreement signed by: THE COUNCIL OF EDUCATION, YOUTH AND SPORTS (CARM) and MOLINA DE SEGURA CITY COUNCIL. Over the years this program is extended to serve other localities, which by the sector organization of the EOEP of the Region of Murcia, belong to this same EOEP:

  • Abanilla y pedanías: Mahoya, Barinas, El Cantón, Cañada de la Leña, La Huerta, Macisvenda.
  • Alguazas y pedanías: Paraje.
  • Ceutí y pedanías: Torraos.

Our intervention in assessing the possible repercussion that aspects of biological and / or social risk may have on the integral development of the child, our service being, under this assumption, of a preventive nature. It is important to consider that WE ARE NOT AN EARLY CARE TREATMENT CENTER, so our main activity is not of a therapeutic nature but rather as a preventive assessment of possible difficulties. Among our objectives are:

  • Detect the psycho-evolutionary needs of the population at high biological and / or socio-environmental risk from 0 to 3 years of the aforementioned populations.
    Inform, advise and support the families involved.
  • Promote coordination with other Institutions (Pediatricians, CDIATs, Social Welfare, …).
  • Prevent difficulties in children who have deficiencies or are at high biological and / or socio-environmental risk.
  • Refer children who may require Early Care therapeutic intervention to specialized treatment services.
  • Request referral to specialists in the health field to rule out organic pathologies.
  • Regulate the schooling of Children with Special Educational Needs at the levels of 1st cycle of Early Childhood Education and first year of 2nd cycle of Early Childhood Education.
  • Advise Early Childhood Education Centers that enroll Students with Special Educational Needs.
  • Management of Aid for Students with Specific Educational Support Needs.

The referral criteria specified here are those established by the ODAT (Early Care Diagnostic Organization). It should be noted that children referred to this early childhood service come for biological / social risk factors, and that a risk factor in itself does not imply a disability.
