Florissa is a centralized service facility for children (0-18 years of age) with developmental, behavioral, social or emotional needs. The main goal of the pediatric developmental center, located at 144 North Court in Dixon, is to provide the opportunity locally for evaluation, diagnosis and treatment under one roof.
Florissa is collaborating with staff of KSB Hospital and Sinnissippi Centers to provide a multi-disciplinary approach to evaluation and treatment, while working to streamline the intake and referral process for children’s services.
Partner organizations of Florissa include Kreider Services, KSB Hospital, Sinnissippi Centers, Lee County Health Department, Lee County Special Education Association, Ogle County Educational Cooperative and parents.
Florissa is currently receiving supportive funding from The Autism Program of Illinois. Additional grant funds from the Office of Rural Health Policy, Health Resources and Services Administration (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services) and the Illinois Children’s Healthcare Foundation have supported the work and implementation of Florissa.
