Social Work Services

 

At the Kireker Center for Child Development, our two licensed social workers support, advocate, and provide referrals to community resources for our patients and their families. They assist our developmental pediatricians in conducting phone intake assessments of new patients, guide them to the appropriate evaluations, and help parents navigate their way through insurance/financial issues. They also facilitate a monthly support group for parents focusing on topics related to early child development, developmental disabilities, children with special needs, therapeutic intervention, genetics, and assistance with community resources. For more information or assistance, call our social workers at 201-447-8278.
