Meet Child & Family Development

Who We Are

Child & Family Development is a multidisciplinary practice offering diagnostic and therapeutic services in the fields of Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Speech Therapy, Psychology, Counseling, Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics, Education, and Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). We serve infants, toddlers, children, adolescents, young adults, and their families. Established in 1980, Child & Family Development is a hallmark service provider for assessing the needs of children and establishing recommended treatment plans. Our team of over 50 highly skilled therapists is frequently recognized for their advanced level of training and clinical expertise used to deliver quality services. Our team of experts assess and treat a wide range of concerns including, anxiety/depression, ASD, ADHD, developmental delays, dyslexia, fine and gross motor impairments, language difficulties, learning disabilities, sensory processing, neuromuscular conditions, and medication management.

What We Do

We have valued and held true to the fundamentals of good therapy since our founding over 40 years ago. First, we believe it is essential for our clients to develop a relationship with a knowledgeable and dedicated therapist. Another priority at C&FD is taking a multidisciplinary approach to treat the whole child. By providing comprehensive and integrated services, we are able to support our clients with efficiency.  Finally, we hold the connections that are built with our families in high regard. The developmental needs of our children have remained consistent; however, the world around them continues to evolve. While our founders were pioneers in their fields, the evidence base of effective treatments has grown dramatically over time. We believe that it is crucial to evolve professionally. Our current team of well-trained providers has a considerable impact on a child’s development by using targeted and effective diagnostic evaluations and treatments.

How We Do It

Our mission is rooted in the belief that we can maximize the potential of every child using a holistic approach to therapy. Our clinicians use up to date research, activity analysis, evaluation data and follow current best practices in their respective fields, to create a treatment plan that is unique to each child’s needs. Parents play an integral role in all services, as part of their child’s treatment team. Often times, parents or caregivers will attend their children’s therapy appointments. These opportunities provide an avenue for families to learn techniques and strategies first hand; resulting in an increased ability to practice skills at home. Collaboration among families and clinicians also provides a unique chance for parents to ask questions, receive feedback, or to develop specialized parenting skills. Navigating parenthood has its challenges. In addition to working with children, C&FD offers specific support related to stress and parenting special needs children. It is not uncommon for families to schedule a consultation with one of our providers, attend a complimentary parent webinar, or stay up to date on a variety of topics by following our blog or social media outlets.
