Student Ambassador Program

For over three years, Child Development Center (CDC) has been at the forefront of  outreach for special needs children including inclusion in mainstream nurseries and schools, and professional development training for educators on topics related to early education, special needs, and inclusion.  In 2015/2016 our autism awareness initiative for students included a very successful essay contest. In addition, we have had a number of student volunteers ranging from high school students to graduate program students. 


Autism Superheroes Program
