Early Childhood

early childhood

Each child is an individual, a member of a family, and part of the community. Through our nationally recognized Child Development Center (CDC), we offer protective, supportive and nurturing programs which help young children through those of elementary school age. Children may have a range of behavioral, developmental, and emotional difficulties.

In school-based and community settings, we provide early childhood services such as assessments, therapeutic educational programs, remediation, counseling, and consultation.
