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.).
Additional information on children served and annual funding is available here.
Any child, from birth up to three years old qualifies for a free screening.

Developmental Screening Q&A:
1. What is a Developmental Screening?
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.
2. What happens if a child meets eligibility requirements?
Upon determining eligibility for services Individual Family Service Plans 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.
