Children with medical conditions that are not listed may be determined eligible for services by a qualified family physician, pediatrician or pediatric subspecialist (pediatric neurologist, geneticist, pediatric orthopedic surgeon, pediatrician with special interest in disabilities) who provides written verification that the child's medical condition is associated with a high probability of developmental delay as listed in eligibility criteria.

 

Children with undiagnosed medical conditions or who require further medical evaluation may be referred by the Child and Family Connections (regional intake entity) for a medical diagnostic evaluation.

 

 

* Referring to DSCC Children with Cleft Palate, Orthopedic Abnormalities, or other potential DSCC eligible diagnoses associated with physical disabilities should be referred to the Division of Specialized Care for Children (DSCC). DSCC may provide medical diagnostic support at no cost to the family. Simultaneously Child and Family Connections should complete the intake process as usual. DSCC will determine the type of ongoing assistance they can provide.
