There is no cost to the family, and anyone living in Cumberland, Hoke or Robeson County with a newborn can participate, including foster and adoptive parents.

Assuring Better Child Health and Development (ABCD) is a collaborative program here in Cumberland County, where focus is placed on insuring that developmental screenings for 0-5 year old children occur during primary care well visits.
Based on screening results and findings, this program subsequently promotes that appropriate referrals and resource linkages are established based on identified needs!
Those connections can include the Children’s Developmental Services Agency, Exceptional Children’s Preschool Program, various therapy agencies, and community partners. Practice level support also includes tailored trainings and technical assistance.
Services for this program are completed by an ABCD Coordinator. Parent and practice education, community connections, promotion of early learning/developmental skills, and readiness for school are the desired outcomes for this program.
The ABCD program is funded through Smart Start dollars provided by the Partnership for Children of Cumberland County.
