A BIT ABOUT US
Community Based Developmental Services (CBDS) was incorporated in 1998 through the vision of a school teacher with thirty-four years of teaching experience. Twenty-seven of those years were spent teaching special needs and autistic students. She saw a need to provide respite services to the families of this population and decided that someone in her community needed to not only care for the individual with the disability, but also the caregiver of the individual. As she learned that the need for more person-centered services were needed in the community, she put together a group of experienced professionals with proven success in providing CAP, Targeted Case Management, Respite, Intensive-in-Home, Developmental Therapy and Community Support services to individuals and families dealing with developmental disabilities, mental illness, and substance abuse issues.
