Developmental Disabilities

Contact the Maternal and Child Health Section

Welcome to the Department of Health's new initiative to provide resources and information on developmental disabilities for pregnant women, health care providers, parents and families. This webpage will be a portal to provide information on evaluation and intervention services, support programs for families, resources for health care providers, and serve as a clearinghouse of information. This website builds on the strong foundation of the department's work with children with disabilities and their families through Children's Medical Services and the Florida Birth Defects Registry. New information will be added as we build this website, so visit often and let us know how we can be helpful to you.
