CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) What happens when an organization wants to continue providing care for children who are not just newborn to five years old? They start a new program that lets them continue to care for children until they turn 21.
CDC Plus opens in Casper.
The Child Development Center of Natrona County opened their CDC Plus program Tuesday. The program offers speech therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy, audiology services and nutrition services.
“We always listen to the needs of our parents and community. To be able to expand services for children and families in need is huge,” Alisha Rone, executive director for CDC, said.
The CDC previously provided care for children from the ages of zero to five. The want to continue providing care led them to the CDC Plus program.
“That’s what we’re here for you know? We’ve provided therapy for 52 years and now we’re just expanding our efforts to provide that continued care to kiddos zero to 21 years of age,” Rone said.
The CDC has continued to develop the last 52 years and Rone is excited to announce programs like CDC Plus to help in the community.
“I think it’s great for our community, families and especially great for the children that we already serve,” Rone said.
