Lakota Tiwahe Center


The Lakota Tiwahe Center provides Early Intervention Services to families of infants and toddlers (Birth-5 year olds) with developmental delays and/or disabilities.  The Project is funded by the Department of Education under the Part C (Birth-2 years) and Part B (3-5 years) of the Individual with Disabilities Act (IDEA).


The Program is administered by the RST Education Department funded by the USDOE Infants & Toddlers with Disabilities Grant.

The Lakota Tiwahe Center  provides services in four areas:

*Child Find for Early Identification
*Developmental Screening/Evaluation
*Parent Training
*Early Intervention Services

The Lakota Tiwahe Centers primary goals are to work toward:

*decreasing the number of children born with disabilities and developmental delays.

*decreasing the number of births to teenage mothers. LTC understand that teenagers are at a greater risk of having babies born with defects and developmental delays due to consumption and lack of prenatal care.

*Screening all babies born on the Rosebud Reservation at six months of age for physical and developmental delays.
