The Child Development Center provides family-focused intervention to families who have a child with a developmental disability or a child considered at risk for delays in development.
The center provides a variety of services to children with developmental disabilities and their families, as well as two specialized autism treatment programs. Clients range in age from birth to young adulthood, and services and support may include direct support and coaching, family education, and referral and coordination of other services.
Most of the Child Development Center's services are provided at no cost to the family.
To help any of these families, call 549-6413.
