The Child Development Center Region II compassionately strives to identify and address developmental needs among children ages birth through five, in turn strengthening families and the greater community.

 

The Child Development Center (CDC) Region II serves Sheridan and Johnson Counties, providing screening for and identification of developmental needs among children ages birth through five and early intervention and specialized educational services.

 

Importance of early identification

A number of disabilities present early in life:

 

  • Speech/language delays
  • Orthopedic impairments
  • Health impairments
  • Hearing and visual impairments (deaf/blind)
  • Down’s Syndrome
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Spina bifida
  • Fetal alcohol syndrome
  • Attention deficit hyperactive disorder (ADHD)
  • Chromosomal abnormalities
  • Autism

 

Accurate identification of developmental needs among young children allows experts to select appropriate interventions, setting the stage for early correction of some impairments and development of plans to improve and support the function of those with life-long disabilities. Early identification also helps concerned parents turn their focus from

worrying to filling an important role in intervention.
