The Early Development Network is a program designed to provide services for children age birth to three that have some type of delay in their development or a disability.  The program is provided at no cost to families.    

If you have questions or concerns about a child's development such as speech, gross motor (sitting, crawling, or walking), fine motor (skills with hands or feeding), hearing, vision or other concerns of development and would like to make a referral, please contact us at 402-597-4936 or click here

Each family that is referred to our program is assigned a Services Coordinator that will assist the family through the assessment process, connect the family to professionals that can address the child's developmental concerns and link the family with community resources that may be helpful to the child or family. The Services Coordinators at ESU#3 serve the districts of Arlington, Bennington, Blair, Conestoga, Douglas County WestElmwood-Murdock, Fort Calhoun, Gretna, Louisville, Millard, Papillion LaVista, Plattsmouth, Ralston, Springfield Platteview and Weeping Water.  

If you do not reside in the above districts, but still would like to have your child evaluated we would be happy to take the referral or you can contact Nebraska Child Find at 1-888-806-6287.
