Mecklenburg County Children’s Developmental Services

The Mecklenburg Children’s Developmental Services agency (CDSA) is the local agency for Early Intervention in our community, which is part of the statewide NC Infant-Toddler Program. We support families to help children from birth to age three who have developmental delays or who are at risk for problems with their development to grow and learn to the best of their potential.

All it takes to start a referral is concern on the part of the parents or other caregivers. We help you meet the developmental needs of your infant or toddler.

To make a referral, please call us at 704-336-7130.
