CORDD (Crisis Oriented Response Team for Developmental Disabilities)

Crisis support to families with children or adults

CORDD assists families struggling through a crisis with an autistic or developmentally disabled child, teen or adult.

CORDD provides short-term home, office and community-based services to address the acute needs of individuals with developmental disabilities, including autism, who are living at home with their families and are facing non-life-threatening crisis situations. CORDD works with families over a six-session period to stabilize the current behavioral/emotional crisis and prevent further deterioration and other crises. CORDD can also make referrals, as needed, to appropriate community resources.

The program receives funding from Family Support Services of the New York State Office for People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD). CORDD services can be billed through most third-party insurance companies as well as Medicaid. Pre-registration for sessions is required.
