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!!!
I have the privilege of coming to CDS every day as my job. I have never been more passionate about my place of work than here. The families inspire me to do my best so that we, in turn, help families who need guidance and support with their child's diagnosis. We see children with Down syndrome, spina bifida, ADHD, dyslexia, autism, cerebral palsy, and many other diagnosed and genetic conditions. All all so precious and have more potential than "experts" give them credit for. CDS and our partners help each child reach their full potential!
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.
