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!!!

Our little boy receives PT and OT through Kidnetics and has attended the wonder center since he was a tiny infant. I'm so Thankful for the staff and having access to services he otherwise wouldn't have.

Thanks to CDS and all of the wonderful therapists, my daughter has been able to accomplish every single goal. This place is very close to my heart and I am thankful for each and every member of this amazing organization. CDS is a place where a smile, a single step, or a waving hand would never go unnoticed.

I am a CDS employee and have been involved with this wonderful organization for four years. The difference this partnership makes in our community is staggering. Families of children with special needs and learning disabilities can come to one central location for doctor appointments, to receive treatment, therapies, and audiological exams. CDS also houses the only medically fragile daycare for young/preschool aged children in the Upstate. Through working with CDS, I have seen the lives of many families changed for the better due to the centralized and varied services offered by this amazing organization and partnership. Greenville is lucky to have such a gem!

I am a member of the local media. I have photographed numerous patients of CDS over the years, and they all have the highest praise for each of their programs. On a personal level, my nephew has been receiving services for the last year and has seen remarkable improvement. CDS is top-notch in every area.
