The disability must have originated before the person is 18 years old. Developmental disabilities include intellectual disability, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, autism, and other neurological conditions closely related to intellectual disability or requiring similar treatment.

Early Start

With An Early Start… We Can Help. Over 50 years of medical and educational research, plus the personal experience of families, teachers, and developmental specialists across the country, show that family-centered interventions during the first three years of a child’s life – sometimes starting even before a newborn infant with special needs comes home from the hospital – can make a profound difference in a child’s future. 

Services

Far Northern Regional Center provides the following services and supports to eligible individuals and their families: Case Management Services, Diagnosis And Evaluations, Health Services, Respite Care, Developmental Services, Legal And Financial Services.

Live Well

FNRC Wellness Initiative Philosophy
The foundation of the FNRC Wellness Initiative focuses on preventative health care and overall personal wellness for individuals who receive FNRC services. It is an entity whose charge is to create employment opportunities for those who receive FNRC services at the same time as addressing health and wellness issues prevalent in our communities.

Advocacy & Legal Assistance

Far Northern Regional Center encourages individuals through self-empowerment to develop the tools and skills needed by those with disabilities to advance their education, seek and obtain employment, and become active participants in their communities. Through all this, our main goal is achieved: to help create contributing members of society who view life without any thought of limitations. We hope the supports and services listed here will benefit those we serve.
