Children With Autism And Developmental Disabilities

Experienced Professionals Working with Children with Autism and Developmental Disabilities

Every parent wants a healthy and loving child. Health can come in a number of different forms ranging from physical to mental health. For some children, parents notice that infant development may not be the same to other children at a similar age. Infant development is often a key metric that parents follow to ensure that their child is progressing with fundamental skills in a traditional time frame. Often, young children that have mental or behavioral disabilities will start to show the first signs of their disability when they are very young, as an infant. These can be simple physical motions that cannot be completed or a behavioral challenge that is different from a traditional learning path for a child. Infant development, when closely monitored, can often help to diagnose a mental disability early. With early detection, parents are able to create a suitable game plan and learning path to help set their child up for success.


Children with autism and developmental disabilities are no different from otherwise healthy children. The only difference is that children with autism and developmental disabilities often need to learn basic skills and fundamentals in a different way. Autism and many developmental disabilities impact a child's nervous system. This can impact the way information is processed or received. For many autistic children, traditional learning tactics will not work, so education must be innovative. The team at the Center for Developmental Play and Learning (CDPL) is filled with professional experts when it comes to helping disabled children. With a team of social workers, occupational therapists, and mental health clinicians, we are dedicated to providing unique and innovative teaching tactics to help promote mental health and developmental progress for your child. We are happy to accommodate all ages of children, ranging from newborn babies to 13-year-old teenagers. At the end of the day, we only want you and your child to have a loving bond and a chance for success in life. Using DIR/Floortime therapy techniques, we are able to work together with children and parents alike to create a positive and healthy learning environment.
