Here are some of the feedback we have received from parents:

  • The CDC was there when I desperately needed someone to turn to. They have continued to be there for 19 years though they have never dealt with our situation before they opened their doors and minds and we all worked together for the HUGE benefit of my son and our family. They have been very positive throughout his life and inventive and encouraging and all with a great sense of pride and humour. They are an amazing team and we all benefit in PG for their contribution to our community and to society.  Way to go keep up the great work.

  • The CDC is a place to build self esteem & self confidence in children. An organization that works closely one on one with special needs children. It is a place where parents can depend on support from staff & other parents (maybe with similar needs). I have personal experiences with watching the tremendous development in children who have been involved with the CDC. Way to Go!”
  • “In a time of absolute frustration The CDC was there for me to provide understanding, information, caring thoughts and ideas. For my son it has brought him a whole new world. It has opened his eyes to the things around him. Our lives have been changed dramatically.  I can’t thank all the wonderful teachers and staff for their kindness and consideration.  Without them, we, as a family, would be lost.”
  • “A public health nurse referred us to the Child Development Centre. At first, we were scared and apprehensive as to what was happening to our child. Our fears were soon laid to rest, as we found the therapists and staff to be supportive and encouraging. Never was anyone judgemental or unfriendly in any way. Every resource available was made accessible to our child and everyone worked as a team to help her. They have been with us through the hard times, and celebrated each and every accomplishment along the way. We will be leaving the CDC this year as our daughter enters Kindergarten. We are sad to be going, but are grateful for the support and encouragement of the last four years. The wealth of knowledge we received from everyone at the Child Development Centre has built a great foundation for us to continue building upon. We will treasure the memories forever.”
