Rose F. Kennedy Children's Evaluation & Rehabilitation Center at Monetfiore

Clinical Services at RFK CERC

The Rose F. Kennedy Children’s Evaluation and Rehabilitation Center of the Children’s Hospital at Montefiore (RFK CERC) is the clinical arm of the Rose F. Kennedy Center. Since 1970, RFK CERC has dedicated it’s mission to helping infants, children, and adults — with or at risk for developmental disabilities — reach their potential and live fulfilling lives. Our holistic approach combines early identification and interdisciplinary care, backed by clinical research into evidence-based treatments. The program utilizes a multidisciplinary model of family-centered and culturally sensitive care to provide diagnostic and therapeutic services focusing on the unique needs of each individual. The program provides approximately 40,000 services to 8,000 unique patients each year. The RFK CERC clinical program also serves as the backbone for the RFK Center’s overarching mission of service, training, research, and advocacy/capacity building, and its respective LEND, IDDRC, and UCEDD programs.
