Redwood Coast Regional Center serves children and adults of all ages with developmental/intellectual disabilities and their families and children who are at-risk for developing a disability.

“Developmental disability” refers to a severe, chronic disability that originates before the individual’s 18th birthday and poses a substantial handicap for the individual in three or more major life areas. These disabilities include intellectual disability, cerebral palsyepilepsyautism, and disabling conditions closely related to intellectual disabilities or requiring similar treatment.

Infants and toddlers (birth to 36 months) who are at “high risk” for a developmental disability may also qualify for services.
