    Parents and legal guardians can self refer to any of the services for children and families.  Professionals and service providers may refer with parental consent.
  2. Consultation and Confirmation of Eligibility
    The BPACL staff dedicated to the appropriate service will meet with you to gather information to better understand the support needs of your family and developmental needs of your child.
    If your child is not yet in school, we may complete a baseline screening of your child’s development to confirm eligibility for developmental services.
  3. Consent
    Once deemed eligible for service, completing signed consent and agreement to participate by parent/legal guardian.  All services are voluntary.
  4. Collaborative Planning: Families will plan collaboratively with the dedicated staff to create an individualized support plan that identifies the goals for your child and family and how services will be delivered.  Families are eligible for Family Support Services when their child is school age or older, residing in the family home and have a developmental disability diagnosis.
