Established by NJID in 1969 as one of the nation's first early intervention programs, The Children's Center has helped thousands of children with developmental disabilities and delays lead more productive and successful lives.
The value of early intervention services administered to infants and young children has long been recognized as vital in enabling maximum potential to be achieved. Intensive clinical and educational services provided early to young children with special needs have been shown to improve developmental outcomes and reduce the dependency on future services as children mature.
Caregivers who participate in The Children's Center experience lessened anxiety about the care and management of their young children. Through family training, supports, practical advice and counseling, the challenges of caring for a child with special needs are addressed and overcome.
