Information for New Clients


New Clients - what to expect at your first visit

Families who are new to the CEC participate in an intake process that determines needed services and/or referrals for those services.


To get started, new clients meet with a representative in the Family Resource Program, which serves as the unifying point for all programs within the CEC. During the intake process, we'll work hard to get to know you as a family, so that we may help to identify strengths and to assess which of our programs will be most beneficial for each client.

We will also discuss schedules for the various programs that the CEC offers as well as program fees. No client is turned away due to inability to pay. However, many of our programs are full and currently have a waiting list.

When appropriate, we will connect you with additional resources in the community, and provide information and referrals as needed. The CEC works with multiple community organizations and we encourage and promote community partnerships in providing services.

The Family Resource Program provides:

  • Information for families affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder and Developmental Delays and Disabilities
  • Screenings and referrals
  • Family needs assessments
  • Resource assistance for local and surrounding communities
  • Family support for adjustment and transition
  • Educational support for families, caregivers, and community partners.
  • Community volunteers to develop and disperse resource information
