In their own words

"My son has been going to C&FD for over six years. His therapists take a medical and knowledgeable approach. Having a child with a severe disability, you often have to think outside of the box. With their help, he has met several milestones in his life. They continue to encourage my son and provide a positive environment for him. We are thankful for their excellent care and positive attitudes."
