On Tuesday December 6th, 2016, a special visitor stopped by the Center for Developmental Services (CDS) to make this holiday season extra joyful for children with special needs and learning disabilities.

Santa Claus made a special trip down south to spend the day with CDS families while taking pictures, handing out presents, and making the day special for some remarkable children.

Santa makes a yearly visit to CDS to help families celebrate the holidays. Last year, CDS served over 6,000 children in the Upstate with developmental delays and disabilities. For more information about the services CDS offers, visit
