Prevention Resource and Referral Services

Infants and toddlers suspected of having a developmental concern including those "at risk" will receive intake and evaluation from SCLARC to determine eligibility for services. SCLARC will facilitate each family's access to our Family Resource Center's Prevention Resource & Referral Services (PRRS).

Eligible children for Prevention Resource & Referral Services are ages birth through 35 months, who are at substantially greater risk for a developmental disability but who would otherwise be ineligible for services through the Early Start Program. Effective July 1, 2011 newly referred families whose infants or toddlers are "at risk" for developmental delay or disability will receive the following services through SCLARC’s Family Resource Center (FRC):

Targeted outreach

Babies identified as being at-risk who are in the prevention program as of June 30, 2011, shall continue in the prevention program with the SCLARC until the child reaches 36 months of age, the regional center has determined the child is eligible for services under the California Early Intervention Program pursuant to Title 14 (commencing with Section 95000) of the Government Code or the Lanterman Developmental Disabilities Services Act (Division 4.5 (commencing with Section 4500)), or June 30, 2012, whichever date is earlier.


Referrals may be made, in writing or by telephone, to SCLARC. Send your requests to Prevention Attn: Resource and Referral Services, Family Resource Center, 650 W. Adams Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90007. The regional center determines that an infant or toddler is "at-risk" for developmental disabilities following an intake and an evaluation. South Central Los Angeles Regional Center’s FRC will partner with parents and families to ensure parents remain an integral part of PRRS. And,  It is always a good idea to discuss questions or concerns with your child's medical provider.
