The Thomas Center for Down Syndrome Services provides comprehensive assessment and treatment plans for infants, children, adolescents and young adults. By providing a range of services within one center, you can now spend less time finding help through multiple agencies and professionals. We provide your family with a full continuum of care, from evaluation, treatment and ongoing research.
The center offers assessments by experts in a variety of areas including:
- Developmental-behavioral pediatrics
- Occupational therapy
- Physical therapy
- Special education
- Speech-language pathology
- Social work
The evaluations provide information on current levels of functioning and recommendations for new or continued intervention. We can order laboratory studies or make referrals to other medical specialists (which may include ENT, ophthalmology, genetics, cardiology, endocrinology, and neurology) within Cincinnati Children’s Hospital.
There are several types of evaluations at the Thomas Center, each aimed at understanding your child’s specific strengths and challenges.
