Child Development Centers
 

The Child Developmental Centers in Virginia provide valuable services to children, especially underprivileged children.  There is currently a major shortage of providers who are able to provide psychological services to children, and the evaluations and services provided by the CDC have been instrumental in helping to fill the gap. In fact, the need is so great that I would recommend expanding and/or increasing the number of CDS's. At the present time, children must often wait three months or more for an evaluation. Unfortunately, a delay in the evaluation also leads to a delay in children receiving the  services that they need subsequent to the results of the evaluation. If any amendment is made to the current program, it should be to increase the services available to children. I urge you not to decrease the services that the CDCs provide to the children within the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Respectfully Submitted,

Dr. William E. Lynch, PsyD

Need for MORE not less
 


The Child Developmental Centers in Virginia provide valuable services to children, especially those considered High Risk. Locally to get in to see another Medicaid provider there is over a 6mo wait; and they don’t even provide the high level of service & evaluations that the CDC does.  

 

 

I can’t agree more with the above doctor that services should be expanded to allow for more CDC’s across the state. 

 

 

The High Risk children of Virginia have so many barriers already. Please do NOT consider reducing but expanding the services offered by CDC. 

 

 Respectfully,

Excellent Health Initiative
 

I think all health and healthcare initiatives are excellent. I love that you allow general public to be a part of this law making system and this review process. This is truly a democratic system. 

Please leave any feed back at health and wellness.

Child Development Clinics
 

Child Development Clinics offer a unique service to the families and children that they assess and support across the Commonwealth of Virginia. The mulidisciplinary approach offers an overview of all facets of a child's life allowing for a clearer picture of needs to be addressed.

At a time when services offered to high risk children are diminishing these services are all the more crucial.

These services also provide an alternative option for parents to get a baseline regarding their students educational achievement and psychological needs.

I would strongly suggest that more clinics are needed across the state to meet the high needs of students and their families.
