The CIDD offers a variety of clinical services designed to assist individuals and their families with known or suspected developmental disabilities. For more details on appropriate referrals to the CIDD, click here. To schedule an appointment, please follow the steps outlined below.

If you would like to schedule an appointment with the Angelman Syndrome Clinic OR the Dup15q Syndrome Clinic, please DO NOT complete the CIDD Contact Form below; instead click on this link to complete a different questionnaire.

PLEASE NOTE: The CIDD is a specialty clinic that offers specific services to those with previous diagnoses or concerns related to a developmental disability. We are not able to provide immediate acute care or crisis intervention. The wait time to be scheduled for an appointment varies and may be up to several months. You will be contacted by a member of our clinic’s intake team regarding scheduling once your request reaches the top of our waitlist.

Step 1: Complete a CIDD Contact Form. Incomplete forms will delay response time. Please be very specific about your current needs and referral concerns. Please note we do not accept blank forms, or medical provider notes without specific referral needs detailed.

We are not currently accepting referrals online. Please print and mail or fax our CIDD Contact Form.

Fax COMPLETED FORMS to: 919-966-2230

Step 2: You may be sent a referral packet to fill out while you are on the waitlist.

Step 3: Complete referral form and return with all required information.

Step 4: A member from our clinic intake team will contact you to schedule an appointment. Please note it could take up to several months for an appointment to become available and to receive notification regarding scheduling.

Although we provide a wide range of services, we may not provide the services you are looking for. If so, you may be contacted by our intake team with other referral suggestions. While we are eager to help you and your family, the length of our wait time varies depending on the individual's evaluation needs. You may wish to contact your primary care physician, mental health professional, or school about evaluation alternatives as needed.
