These services are designed to act on what families think is important for their child and family. The Network is staffed by friendly, supportive people who listen to and respect families. The Network also can connect families with other families who have had similar experiences. The goal of the Early Development Network is to provide coordinated services for Nebraska families as conveniently as possible. The program helps families to understand their child's disability and provides assistance in dealing with situations that interfere with the child's development.

The Early Development Network is a collaborative effort of the Nebraska Departments of Education and the Health & Human Services to serve infants and toddlers with disabilities and their families.
