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, including evaluation, treatment and ongoing research.
The center offers comprehensive services by experts in a variety of areas including:
- Developmental-behavioral pediatrics
- Care coordination
- Occupational therapy
- Physical therapy
- Special education
- Speech-language pathology
- Social work
- Transition care (Internal medicine trained providers for adolescents and young adults)
Evaluations provide information on current levels of functioning and recommendations for new or continued intervention. We are able to 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 or closer to your home when appropriate.
There are several types of evaluations at the Thomas Center, each with the goal of better understanding your child’s specific strengths and needs.
