Community-Based Rehabilitative Services (CBRS)


Partners In Learning provides Community-Based Rehabilitative Services (CBRS) to children ages birth to three years old in Rowan and surrounding counties including Cabarrus, Davidson, Davie, Forsyth, Iredell, Stanly, Stokes, Surry, Union, Guilford, Catawba, Burke, and Yadkin.

CBRS is developmental intervention uniquely designed to enhance cognitive, physical, behavioral, self-help, social-emotional, and language skills.

CBRS is a part of the state’s Infant Toddler Program. The Infant Toddler Program is a variety of agencies working together to provide early intervention services for children ages birth to three who have special needs and their families. Early Intervention Services help young children grow and develop while supporting their families in caring for them. Children enrolled in the Infant Toddler Program may be eligible for a variety of services, including evaluations, service coordination, assistive technology, and specialized therapy.
