Finding the Light Perinatal Support can help a parent develop a strong bond with the baby, process birth-related trauma, new parental experience, loss, and disability, and provide a safe and stable environment for you and the baby to grow together. This program is currently only offered to parents enrolled in another RCDC program.

Russell Child Development Center's Early Intervention Program is part of a statewide system that provides early intervention services to children ages birth to 36 months and their families. RCDC provides services in 13 Southwest Kansas counties.


Attachment and Biobehavioral Catch-up (ABC) is offered to parents and caregivers with children between the ages of 0 and 48 months. ABC will strengthen your positive relationship with your child while helping your child to develop in a healthy way.

The play groups provide Ages and Stages screening for children, developmental information and material for parents, and encourages community-based collaboration to support the play groups.
