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.
To be eligible for services a child must show a 25% delay in one area or 20% delay in two or more areas
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.
