  • Child and Family Assessment

  • The following programs, located in our center, help children and families access medically necessary services in the community:

    The Early Intervention Program is a comprehensive program for children between birth and three years of age who have, or who are at risk for, developmental challenges. The Children’s Neurodevelopment Center is certified, through the Rhode Island Department of Human Services, to provide a full range of services to these children and their families. A multidisciplinary staff supplies family-centered evaluations, parent training and support, treatment options, and community-based services to augment the family’s capacity to enhance the child’s growth and development.

    The ACT Now Clinic provides assessment and clinical triage of pediatric patients and their families, and allows for earlier access to specialty care. The clinic uses a process-oriented triage and care coordination model, including the development of clinically appropriate care plans for children with complex conditions. Clinical teams include a licensed clinician and a family service coordinator. At the initial meeting our experienced staff develops a written plan of care for the child and family. The plan may include further evaluation at the center, and/or referrals to clinicians or programs outside of our center. If appropriate, families will be given the option to join our Families First CEDARR program for ongoing support.

    Families First CEDARR Center, a Rhode Island Medicaid program, is funded by the Rhode Island Department of Human Services. CEDARR provides comprehensive evaluation, diagnosis, assessment, referral and re-evaluation for children from birth to age 21. The center also assures coordination of services, care planning and crisis intervention. Hasbro Children’s Hospital and Bradley Hospital collaborate to provide medical expertise to the Families First CEDARR Center.
