For more than 40 years, the Center for Developmental Disabilities of Pike County, Ltd. has provided educational, therapeutic, behavioral, and family support services for children with developmental delays and disabilities from birth to kindergarten age. Our grass roots response began with a long-time resident of Pike County, Marian Almquist, who visited families and helped them access information and services.
CDD has evolved into a multi-disciplinary program that averages serving 200 families a year in Pike County. At the Center for Developmental Disabilities, we offer licensed professional services. We offer quality Early Education services and an Early Intervention program that follows Pennsylvania Department of Education Standards and curriculum guidelines. Our classroom teachers are certified and licensed. Our licensed therapists provide occupational, physical, speech and language therapies. Our family support staff is experienced in working with complex family and cultural issues. Our behavioral support staff is trained and experienced in providing positive behavioral supports and plans for children as needed.
