Helping Children Be Their Best Selves
The Michael R. Boh Center for Child Development is here to help children overcome challenges, develop their unique talents and reach their full potential. For some children, realizing their potential might mean a little extra help in the classroom or special tools to support communication with the world around them. For others, intensive therapies to overcome the effects of complex neuromuscular conditions make all the difference. No matter what the ability or challenge, children and families need reliable, compassionate, coordinated, and comprehensive care in partnership with a team they trust.
The Boh Center offers personalized, family-centered patient care in one location. A care team comprised of experts from many disciplines brought in from all around the country works together to provide a comprehensive, collaborative approach to care. We evaluate, diagnose and create individualized treatment plans for children with neuro-muscular or physical disabilities as well as neuro-cognitive, behavioral and communication related conditions.
