Through a statewide network, New Jersey provides support for eleven Child Evaluation Centers (CECs) which provide comprehensive, multidisciplinary evaluations of children with congenital or acquired neuro-developmental and behavioral disorders.  Following evaluation, the CECs develop an individualized service plan (ISP) in collaboration with families.  Cost of a diagnostic evaluation is the responsibility of the patient and each clinical site varies in their fees. However, no child shall be denied access to theses services due to the absence of third party health insurance coverage or an inability to pay.  Families should contact the evaluation team directly to determine their options regarding insurance, sliding scale fees, private pay or other funding sources.  Contact information for the CEC located in your region:
