My son has been coming to CDS since he was three years old forspeech. I was lucky enough to have a place like CDS to bring my son too, to get the help he needs. The people here are nice and friendly, and very helpful to me and my son. Since my son has been coming here his speech has inproved greatly over the past seven years. His therapist is very intune with my son's needs and is so helpful in giving me information that will help my son at home. I am thankful for the help and support that CDS has given to my son and me.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The help and service it has offered my child.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

have more support groups for parents with children who have speech impairments.

Child Development Services have been a tremendous help to our family. My husband and I have 2 children that currently receive services at the CDS. One of our children sees 3 different therapist. All four of the therapist have been helpful and worked with us. They are easy to talk to and understanding. As I am a homeschool mom they have been very helpful with letting me know how I as a mom can best help my child achieve her full potential as well as things to look for in curriculum that would be good to help strengthen areas that are week but not to the point of making the child discouraged. The check in staff are always so friendly and have gone out of their way to have my child seen by another therapist if the regular therapist in not available that day. This organization has truly made my life easier as a parent to help me know how to deal with my children with special needs more effectively .

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my daily life.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

try and make it so that the wait list to get a child seen for therapy was shorter.
