Our experienced team of experts offers training, technical assistance, research and educational resources to help people with disabilities, families, health care professionals and educators. We encourage South Dakotans with disabilities to pursue active, self-determined lives.

Services Include:

Birth to Three Early Intervention Services – We provide free early intervention services, including developmental screenings and evaluations, for families with children from birth to age three who have difficulty learning, growing or behaving like other children in their age group or have a medical condition which doctors feel may need special attention. Along with service coordination, early intervention for babies and toddlers may include a variety of services and support based on what parents would like to see happen next for their child and family.

Technical Assistance Services

LEND Developmental Clinic – Our LEND clinic works to improve the health of infants and children with neurodevelopmental and related disabilities. We help families who are interested in learning how to support their child’s strengths and address their weaknesses and health care needs.

The South Dakota LEND Developmental Clinic provides a free interdisciplinary evaluation to children who are between six months and five years old who may have a developmental concern. The evaluation is offered once a month at the USD Sanford School of Medicine Health Science Center in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
