Learning for Life kicks off a month-long series on children with special needs.

You notice your child isn't meeting typical childhood development milestones. Or maybe you sense that something isn't quite right with your child. There is help. And children benefit when families access that help as soon as possible.

Families can reach out to their local pediatrician or the state's Early Support for Infants and Toddlers, an early intervention program that provides services to children birth to age 3 who have disabilities and/or developmental delays.

Dr. Bette Hyde, director of Washington state's Department of Early Learning, which now oversees the state's Early Support for Infants and Toddlers program, talks about the support available to children with special needs and how parents can access the help they need.

Learning for Life airs every Wednesday on KING 5 Morning News on KONG 6/16 TV between 8:15 and 8:30 a.m.
