CHILD DEVELOPMENT CENTER
The Child Development Center (CDC) is located in Jersey City, operates Monday-Friday and serves forty-eight children, under the age of three, with a developmental delay.
We provide free door-to-door transportation for those living in our limited catchment area, free meals and snacks, and an ever-changing array of developmentally appropriate sensory and play experiences in a 1:4 teacher/child ratio with highly trained staff. Parent support activities and parent participation days are offered to provide added enrichment and information for families.
This program is financed through contracts with the State and County government funding sources.
IN-HOME RESPITE SERVICES
Youth & Adult In-Home Respite provides family caregivers with a short period of rest or relief by arranging alternate caregiving for the family member with a developmental disability.
Over forty families in Hudson County receive in-home respite care each week. Specially trained providers care for individuals with developmental disabilities through activities which best suit their specific needs and preferences.
Respite providers give support in the areas of self-help, practical skills and community integration. Social recreational activities are a top priority. Adults enrolled in this program are referred by the New Jersey Division of Developmental Disabilities. Youths (up to ages 21 years) are referred by the New Jersey Department of Children & Families Division of Children’s System of Care.
EARLY INTERVENTION SERVICES
Children meeting the New Jersey Department of Health eligibility requirements (birth-3 years old) and their families living in Hudson County receive family training services through Hudson Milestones. Services include developmental intervention, physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy, nurse support and family support. Our staff are specialists in this field.
