CE's further integration within US therapy

Local award for center

The Center for Developmental Difference (slogan: 'Changing I can't to I can') is a family-oriented program in Virginia Beach VA, 'specializing in the treatment of' –

ADD/ADHD/Learning Disabilities • Apraxia/Dyspraxia • Articulation • Asperger's Syndrome • Auditory Processing Disorders • Autism Spectrum Disorders/PDD • Brain Injury • Cerebral Palsy • Developmental Delays • Down Syndrome • Hearing Loss • Sensory Integration Dysfunction • Speech/Language Delays/Disorders • Torticollis • Undiagnosed Developmental Delays

This comes from its smart new website, at:


The center illustrates the diversifying client-groups as they integrate ever more closely into local ways, and their diversifying professional alliances:

JUDIT ROTH MAT, CET
Conductive Education Specialist

CRAIG CHACON BS, SDI, SAVI 
Self-Defense Instructor, IEP Family Advocate

MERYL A. BARNS BC-MT 
Board Certified Music Therapist

LESLIE MAGGIE BC-MT

They have been named a 'Best Therapy Center in Virginia Beach' for 2010 in the Virginian Pilot Reader’s Choice Award


Judit outlined the philosophy behind this radical change of tack, in an earlier article in Conductive World:

...based on my 13+ years working in the United States, I came to the conclusion that the CE centers that we all tried very hard to build are just not the way to succeed long-term. I know that this is a harsh statement but we have to realize that this model is not working long-term. There are only a handful of CE organizations in the US who have able to mark a 10-15 year anniversary.

Like an fast-increasing number of CE-programs in 2010, the Center for Developmental Differences is on Facebook:
