CDC services are family-centered. We recognize that the family is the most important influence in a child’s life and we encourage the family’s involvement in all services for their child. We strive to meet these goals by teaching the family/caregiver activities and strategies to be used within the child’s daily routines. (School age refers to a child that is 5 years old on or before December 31 of that year)
