Has Your Child Received Services?
RCDC's licensed team of Tiny-k 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 skills, thinking skills, social skills, communication skills and muscle development.
Upon determining eligibility for services Individual Family Service Plans (IFSP) are developed by the tiny-k 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 Tiny-k home visitors also possess a wealth of information and knowledge specific to you and your child's needs.
