who we are
The Giles County Child Development Center (CDC) was founded in 1993.  Each year the program serves approximately 35 children between the ages of birth and three years old with developmental delays and disabilities.
 
HOME/COMMUNITY BASED SERVICES
The CDC provides services to children in their homes or other community based locations. Degreed CDC teachers work with children on family centered goals and assist parents to integrate learning opportunities into their daily routines and activities.  Frequency and times of the sessions vary depending on the individual needs of each family.

The program's objective is to identify children with developmental delays and disabilities at an early age and provide Educational/Early Intervention services to meet the specific needs of the child and family. 
 
Eligibility
Eligibility for the program is based on a qualifying diagnosed condition, degree of prematurity, or a child's percentage of developmental delay.  Tennessee Early Intervention System determines whether children meet the guidelines for early intervention services.
 
services
The CDC provides year round early intervention services, focusing on the children's speech/ language, cognitive, motor, and social development.  CDC offers services in the child's home or community based location or within a CDC classroom with peers.  Services are at no cost to families whose children have been determined to have a qualifying delay in development or diagnosed disability.
 
Costs
CDC services are provided without costs to families whose children have been determined to have a delay in development or a diagnosed disability.
 
Referrals
Anyone having a concern for a child's development is encouraged to contact the CDC.  Free developmental screenings are available upon request.
 
Funding
The CDC is a non-profit 501(c)(3) agency.  Major funding for the program is provided through a grant from the Tennessee Department of Education.  Contributions are received from City and County governments, civic clubs, local industry, and the community of faith.   A "Helping Hands Trail Ride" is organized through the Center each year to raise additional money necessary to operate the program.
 
you can help
Monetary contributions can be made directly to the CDC, through United Way of Maury County, or Giving Matters.  Donations of supplies and materials necessary to care for the children and facility are also appreciated.
