Has Your Child Received Services?
RCDC's licensed team of educators and therapists work with families to build a unique success plan for every child with a developmental delay or disability.
Services are provided in your child's own environment- where he or she lives, learns and plays- and are available at no cost. Funding is provided by local state and federal sources through Part C of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (I.D.E.A.).
Any child, from birth up to three years old qualifies for a free screening.

Developmental Screenings are:
Free Screenings and Evaluations are available to families and take place in a natural setting, such as the child’s home or community. At least two professionals meet with a family to gather information about how a child is developing and to determine if he/she is eligible for services.
Each child’s hearing, vision, and overall development will be screened by trained professionals.
RCDC screenings look at self-help, thinking, social, communication, and muscle development skills.
Upon determining eligibility for services, Individual Family Service Plans (IFSP) are developed by the Early Intervention team and family for eligible children. These plans guide the team in meeting the needs and addressing the priorities of each child and family.
The Importance of Screenings:
There are many resources for parents on the benefits of brain development and early childhood outcomes. RCDC has compiled some helpful links on our Resources page, and our home visitors also possess a wealth of information and knowledge specific to you and your child's needs.
