Child Development Clinics offer a unique service to the families and children that they assess and support across the Commonwealth of Virginia. The mulidisciplinary approach offers an overview of all facets of a child's life allowing for a clearer picture of needs to be addressed.
At a time when services offered to high risk children are diminishing these services are all the more crucial.
These services also provide an alternative option for parents to get a baseline regarding their students educational achievement and psychological needs.
I would strongly suggest that more clinics are needed across the state to meet the high needs of students and their families.
