This training will partner Yadkin County Schools with the county’s privately owned child care facilities. Participants will gain the knowledge to be able to identify and refer children to early intervention or special education services once they reach age 3. The training will be led by Yadkin County Schools Preschool Coordinator, Jill Logan.
