Northeast Regional Consultation Program (RCP)
Support for children enrolled in Early Intervention who have special healthcare needs
PCD is home of the Northeast Regional Consultation Program. RCP helps families and their early intervention teams identify and access the tools, programs, referral information, equipment, and other resources they need to help children reach their full potential.
The Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH) created 6 RCPs. They selected PCD to run the Northeast RCP as a support to the 13 Early Intervention Programs in Northeast Massachusetts.
