Our team works closely with parents, families, and schools to better understand the impact of children's developmental and behavioral challenges on the family and daily life. We work with families to advocate for their children by partnering with schools and other therapy providers involved in the child's care. To better provide coordinated care, our clinic has an intake process.
Our intake process
The Child Development Center uses an intake process to find out about your child and the concerns you would like to address. The intake process involves calling the Mental & Behavioral Health intake line at 414-266-3339 or completing a two-page form that will be mailed to you (upon your physician’s referral to the CDC). All parents are mailed a consent for release of information. The consent for release of information allows Child Development to get copies of IEPs from your child’s school and other relevant evaluations, such as outside neuropsychological or speech evaluations. This information helps us to best meet the needs of your child and family.
