Narrative

Department of Developmental Services Family Support Project. The Family Support Project, based at Redfield House, provides outreach and specialized support to families of children with developmental disabilities through a contract with the Massachusetts Department of Developmental Services. A developmental disabilities specialist offers in-home supportive counseling, skills training for parents in regard to behavior management issues, advocacy with the school systems and liaison to other providers. Support services enable children with special developmental needs to remain at home and are aimed at helping families maximize their own strengths and access all appropriate community services.
