Children's Developmental Services Agency
Children who are suspected to have, or who have already been diagnosed with a developmental disability and are under age 3 are seen in this office. Developmental disabilities include spina bifida, autism, mental retardation and other childhood developmental difficulties involving movement or communication. We see many children with greatly varied needs stemming from illness, injury or delayed development. Children are referred to the CDSA by physicians, other health care professionals and parents.
The CDSA is the local lead agency for the Infant-Toddler Program, a federally mandated program that is Part C of the Individuals with Disabilities Act serving children from birth to age 3. The CDSA provides evaluation, case management and intervention services throughout a multi-county area. The Greenville CDSA catchment area comprises Beaufort, Bertie, Greene, Hyde, Martin, Pitt and Wayne counties. Case management and evaluation services are provided to help determine eligibility and developmental needs. Once eligibility has been determined, case management and intervention services such as physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech/language services and community-based rehabilitative services are authorized and provided with parental approval and involvement.
Assistive technology services are also available. Equipment such as wheelchairs and communication devices are available for loan to therapists treating children.
