Services for Children

Has your child been diagnosed with Autism, Downs Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, or another disability?  Summit DD is here to help. We offer an array of services for eligible children with special needs and their families.  From early intervention services for babies and child care for all ages, to inclusive community programs and school-age supports, we’ve designed services to fit your family’s needs and daily routines, right in your community.


Early Intervention, Birth to Age Six

Services are offered to children with special needs from birth to age six and are tailored to the individual needs of each family. These services are offered at no cost to you and are provided year-round. We work with you to build supports that are flexible and accessible by listening to your concerns, your priorities and your family routines.
