Developmental Disabilities

A developmental disability is a severe, chronic ailment caused by mental or physical impairments. Those with these conditions have limitations on major life activities such as self care, language, learning mobility, self direction, independent living and economic self-sufficiency. These disabilities usually begin before age 22 and require life-long, individually planned services. Atlantic Health System offers two locations to treat these types of conditions.

The Developmental Disabilities Centers (DDC), part of the Center for Human Development at Morristown Medical Center, offers diagnostic and treatment services for adults with developmental disabilities. We are also located at Overlook Medical Center's Union Campus. Our staff includes board-certified internal medicine physicians and nurse practitioners who collaborate with developmental pediatricians, neurologists, psychiatrists, clinical nurse specialists, psychologists and licensed professional counselors to provide comprehensive, integrated primary care and behavioral health services.

Any adult with a developmental disability is eligible for our services and should be registered with the Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD). Our patients include individuals who live with family or in their own homes, supervised apartments, skills development homes with sponsors or group homes with staff.

Our medical developmental disabilities services include:

  • Comprehensive medical and neurological evaluations
