Medical & Developmental Supports – Queens

Also known as intensive preventive services, this program offers the same basic services offered by our Family Support Programs, but these services are modified and/or intensified to meet the family’s specific needs.  The program utilizes an interdisciplinary approach involving case planners, case aides, nurses and a developmental specialist to meet the needs of families, including advocacy support and referrals.
