Child Development Unit

Birth to Three

The Child Development Unit (CDU) is the Birth to Three provider for Racine County.  We provide support and services for families and their children, birth to three years old, who have special needs. The first years of a child's life are the critical years for learning and developing.  Our service approach is based on research that shows the importance of everyday activities that occur in a child/family life.


At RCOC, we know that every family‚Äôs needs are different, that is why our services are individualized to meet the child/families' needs.  Early intervention is successful when the family has the support to engage with their child.  The parent/child relationship is of utmost importance for the child's development.


 Our goal is to strengthen/develop child/parent relationship for fuller family

participation in everyday activities.
