My daughter was born with a cleft palate in May of 2008. My family and myself were not familiar with any of the issues that went along with this condition. CDS has been so amazing in helping my daughter to grow into an active, happy child and ensuring that I had all that I needed to help her. If it wasn't for all their generosity I don't know what we would have done!!!

We have had two children with various special needs that CDS has helped us with. When facing these trials children often need help in multiple areas and CDS helps deliver all the help in one location. They are awesome to work with!!

Having this facility allowed me to keep my job after giving birth to a severely disabled little girl. Then helped my second child with s speech disorder who is now in 8th grade.

My oldest daughter was born after a very lengthy labor (60+ hours before the attending obgyn decided to do a c section). We believe there were complications due to this, including her having ODD, ADHD, sensory integration disorder and being developmentally delayed. CDS was instrumental in helping us to prepare her for school (initially a child development center, then a regular elementary school). While she is still a little behind, she has made huge strides, all thanks in large part to the staff at CDS. For this, my wife and I thank CDS from the bottoms of our hearts.

My son was born with a bilateral cleft lip and palate, and CDS has a clinic held on their premises called FACET. It's a long day once a year to meet with specialist physicians and therapists, but it's is so awesome that they provide this service so I can know he's on track! He's never needed other services but if he did I know he'd be well taken care of there.

My wife and I have been bringing our son here for almost a year. And the care and compassion that they show both her with questions and his comfort is a blessing. Sarah Thompson and Elizabeth Hitchcock are amazing at what they do and are second to none for my sons care and for helping my wife. Our son would not be where he is with out these two ladies. Now we have added speech to the mix and you can already see an improvement in our sons eating and swallowing.

My daughter has been taking speech therapy through Kidnetics at CDS for the past 2 years. Everyone who works there has always had a smile on their face, and we couldn't be more pleased with the progress our daughter has made. I would not hesitate to recommend the services of CDS to anyone!
