Greenville, S.C. (April 23, 2018): The Center for Developmental Services (CDS) was selected as the beneficiary of a Girl Scout Silver Award project. Cadette Troop 831 of Service Unit 635 donated books, therapy toys, puzzles, and games to be used by children with developmental delays who are served by CDS partners. The Silver Award is Girl Scout’s second highest honor, and a pivotal step in leadership for Cadette level scouts in 6-8th grades.
Pictured L-R are: Dana McConnell (CDS Executive Director), Courtney Taylor, Sarah Lamb, Paris Adams, and Shwetha Rajmohan.
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, legal help, day care needs for the medically fragile, and a family support network. The partnership is comprised of Clarity; Family Connection of SC; Medical-Legal Partnership; KidVentures of Thrive Upstate; 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 7,600 children and their families each year on property donated by the First Presbyterian Church at 29 North Academy Street in Greenville.
