Once your child's delay is diagnosed, you and your therapist will meet to develop the appropriate treatment plan. At that time, very specific plans and therapies are then provided by us or by referral to an appropriate resource.

The Pediatric Developmental Center strives to provide services to every family in need regardless of ability to pay. We are aided in this effort by funding from the Illinois Department of Human Services and by private grants and philanthropy, including The Feldman Endowment for Children with Special Needs and The Masonic Family Health Foundation. The center has a sliding fee scale for eligible families; Medicaid and private insurance are also accepted. Our billing coordinator is always available to assist families.
