We have been coming to CDS for over a year. My son is served there for more than one delay and services related to his ASD. Everyone there is very helpful and accommodating to our needs and schedule. His therapists are so skilled and truly care! I'm very thankful CDS has so many resources in one place. It helps my son's comfort level to know his doctor, OT, ST, & PT are all in the same place.

This place is absolutely amazing. As a volunteer, I got to observe the staff in action and the care that they give to the children is phenomenal. It truly is an honor to get to play a tiny role in what goes on at CDS.
