CDS Celebrates “Sweet Sixteen” Birthday
On Wednesday July 20th, 2016, the Center for Developmental Services (CDS) celebrated its “Sweet Sixteen” birthday since opening its doors in 2000.
The children enjoyed face-painting, Spin-the-Wheel, and various games and prizes. Highlights for the children included a close-up look at emergency vehicles and interacting with our first responders. Special thanks to the Greenville Police Department, the Greenville Fire Department, and volunteers for helping with the event.
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 www.cdservices.org/.
CDS is the largest multi-disciplinary treatment facility in the Upstate for children with disabilities and developmental delays. In one location, children receive services in therapy, diagnosis, school placement, day care needs for the medically fragile, and a family support network. The partnership is comprised of Clarity; Family Connection of SC; the Preschool Special Education Program of Greenville County Schools; KidVentures of Thrive Upstate (formerly the Greenville County Disabilities and Special Needs Board); and four programs of the Greenville Health System: Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics, Kidnetics, The Wonder Center, and Prosthetics and Orthotics. CDS and its partners serve over 6,000 children and their families each year on property donated by the First Presbyterian Church at 29 North Academy Street in Greenville.
