Center for Child Health and Development (CCHD)

The Center for Child Health and Development (CCHD) is a resource for families. When a child has trouble learning, speaking or acting, parents want answers and help. The staff at CCHD work as a team of experts to diagnose your child. Recommendations help families know where to begin. Our goal is to provide family-centered care.

CCHD staff have expertise in child development, autism spectrum disorders, Fragile X syndrome, and other developmental disabilities.
