The Pediatric Development Center provides Early Intervention services to Central Berkshire and South Berkshire Counties. Our mission is to offer education, therapy, and family support for children birth to age three who have developmental concerns. Children are eligible for PDC services if they have developmental difficulties due to identified disabilities, or if their development is at risk due to certain birth or environmental circumstances.
At PDC we recognize the crucial influence that the entire family has on the life of the developing child. We work in partnership with families, developing a plan designed to address the desired outcomes of parents for their child. Our services are provided in the child’s natural environment, including their home, day care setting, and other early childhood settings.
Our lengthy experience as early intervention providers has reinforced our belief that consistent, loving adults in a child’s life will have the greatest influence on development. Early environments matter and nurturing relationships are essential. With these values in place, our clinicians work side-by-side with families, strengthening parents to feel confidence and competence in their own abilities to raise their child.
