I am the Director of a local non-profit preschool and kindergarten program. We serve children from 6 months to 6 six years. The CDS is a wonderful resource to our community. I have recommended several children over the years to be tested for services through CDS and have seen these children reap the benefits from working with these specialists. Early intervention is key to a child's success and having the CDS available to families in our community is priceless. Many families could not afford the therapy that their child needs any other way. Thank you to each and every one of the special people that work at the CDS.

As an OT with Kidnetics, I enjoy working in such a unique setting. My immediate co-workers in Kidnetics are knowledgable, professional, and always available for dynamic therapy brainstorming. My CDS co-workers are just as wonderful to work with. Everyone is always pleasant and willing to help with problem solving. I love that we have access to such great resources right outside my office door.

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

Successful patient gains in functional skills from handwriting to movement to play to sensory integration. Increased confidence in parents' understanding and ability to facilitate developmental skills in their child.

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

Faciliate more teamwork in new and creative ways with other departments. Spread the word about CDS and ALL of its services to more people.
