What is the Regional Consultation Program?Regional Consultation Programs (RCPs) provide consultation, family support, and community-wide workshops and training in Massachusetts. Eligible children must be enrolled in a certified Early Intervention Program and meet one or more of the following criteria: the child has extensive medical and/or healthcare needs, complex care needs, or multiple disabilities.
RCPs provide support for family members to help them care for their child with complex needs. The RCP also provides support for Early Intervention and Child Care providers to raise community awareness and capacity to care for children with multiple disabilities at home and in other early education and care environments.
RCP services are funded through the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care, Medicaid, Health Insurance and Health Maintenance Organizations, and through grants and charitable contributions.
