Center for Developmental Disabilities for Pike County – PENNSYLVANIA
The Center for Developmental Disabilities (CDD) is a preschool for children with and without disabilities. Our unique inclusive program ensures equal learning opportunities for all children, regardless of ability, to ensure they receive the academic and social skills needed to succeed in life.
For more than 40 years, the Center for Developmental Disabilities of Pike County, Ltd. has provided educational, therapeutic, behavioral, and family support services for children with developmental delays and disabilities from birth to kindergarten age. Our grass roots response began with a long-time resident of Pike County, Marion Almquist, who visited families and helped them access information and services.
CDD has evolved into a multi-disciplinary program that averages serving 200 families a year in Pike County. At the Center for Developmental Disabilities, we offer licensed professional services. We offer quality Early Education services and an Early Intervention program that follows Pennsylvania Department of Education Standards and curriculum guidelines. CDD's classroom teachers are certified and licensed. Our licensed therapists provide occupational, physical, speech and language therapies and our family support staff is experienced in working with complex family and cultural issues.
At CDD, we support the needs of all children in our program. Working with therapists and behaviorists, our highly qualified preschool teachers use a variety of support strategies to meet the needs of each student. Our low student- teacher ratio allows all of our students to benefit from more individualized attention in an engaging and supportive learning environment. Through curriculum and play, our students learn the academic and the social skills necessary for a successful transition to kindergarten.
