Developmental Services

Community Developmental Services (CDS) provides comprehensive services to children and adults with developmental disabilities, autism and other pervasive developmental disorders.

All persons receiving support from CDS are assigned a Service Coordinator/Case Manager who is responsible for their Individual Support Agreement and assists the person in achieving success within their community.

The Bridges Program provides care coordination to assist families of children under age 22, eligible for Vermont Medicaid, and who have developmental disabilities.

The Bridges Program is a goal-driven approach and designed to help families:

  • Determine what supports or services are needed.
  • Access needed medical, educational, social or other services to address their child’s needs.
  • Coordinate multiple community-based services and develop a plan to address their child’s needs.
