Therapeutic Services

New York Center for Child Development offers center and community-based services in Manhattan and the Bronx. Whether a child’s delay is in communication, socialization, emotional development, or cognitive, sensory or motor skills, we provide the individual care and attention required to foster his or her maximum potential. Services offered include:

Speech-Language Therapy – The speech department is comprised of monolingual and bilingual licensed speech pathologists. Their role is to evaluate and provide therapy to children who have speech and language delays and disorders and to facilitate the development of communication skills.

Occupational Therapy – Our highly trained professionals identify developmental delays in fine motor development, perceptual functioning, sensory integration and daily living skills. Group and individual treatment programs are designed to improve functioning in these areas.

Physical Therapy – Our physical therapists help children to improve motor skills. Activities are planned to increase muscle strength, balance and motor control. As a result children can move through a school environment in a safe, fluid manner.

Counseling – Our Social Service Department is comprised of skilled psychologists and social workers who provide a range of services to families and children, including counseling, family training and family/caregiver support groups. Our social workers provide ongoing support to families by assisting with the coordination of other appropriate services.

“The work of all members of the team is informed by what others have shared about a child’s development and capabilities. Therapists work together to coordinate and plan the best ways to help the children get the most out of the services we provide.”
