The Center for Child Development (CCD) at Wood County Hospital is a developmental behavioral pediatric program for children from infancy to age 21 with developmental and behavioral conditions.

The CCD offers diagnosis, treatment and follow-up for children who have the following developmental and behavioral conditions such as:

  • Delayed development in speech, language and motor skills
  • Genetic disorders (such as as Down syndrome)
  • Autism spectrum disorders
  • Visual and hearing impairments
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Intellectual disability
  • Developmental and behavioral problems associated with chronic conditions
  • The Ready Program: intensive program for children ages 3-5 years old

Diagnosing and treating these conditions as early as possible is important. Early intervention increases the developmental and educational gains for the child, improves the functioning of the family, and reaps long-term benefits for society. Recognition of problems can often get a child into therapies sooner, and help families identify the areas needing medical expertise.

Early Intensive Program: The Ready Program

The Ready Program is an intensive program serving children with autism between the ages of 3 to 5 years. The Ready Program provides intensive intervention through small group and individual instruction to facilitate learning and readiness skills for successful transition into a kindergarten classroom. The program includes specialized instruction, speech, occupational, and physical therapies, family education, home programming and incorporation of evidence based practices and methods that will improve social, cognitive and communication skills.

The Ready Program starts September 2, 2014. For further information contact Lauren Miller CCC/SLP.
