“We’ve been so impressed thus far with the passion and support that everyone at the CDC is providing. Our family feels as though we have a true partner that shares a common goal of bettering our son’s environment and access to necessary resources so he can be successful in his growth and development.”
Having a child with different abilities can be overwhelming at times and knowing I have a team of professionals in my corner to provide therapy, support, and education is such a blessing.
Our community is so lucky to have the NCDC close to home. The support they give is so impactful to the children and families.
A heartfelt Thank you to all the past and present staff who have been a part of our journey. We know that Caylee has benefited immensely from all the therapies and support that she has received.
The McCaw Family.”
