The Center for Developmental Services (CDS) has completed their lobby renovation project, the first major renovation since their doors opened over seventeen years ago. New features include a fun transportation theme with large wooden cars, a mural of the Blue Ridge Mountains, a separate waiting area for medically-fragile children, and a low-sensory waiting area for those patients who need less stimulation.
The project designs were created by DP3 Architects, Ltd, and construction was supervised by Creative Builders, Inc. The new lobby will impact more than 6,800 Upstate children each year who come to the center for evaluation, diagnosis, therapy, and family support.
CDS is the largest multi-disciplinary treatment facility in the Upstate for children with disabilities and developmental delays. In one location, families have access to an on-site day care for medically fragile children, hearing evaluations, medical diagnosis, speech, occupational, and physical therapies, legal representation, and family support. The partnership is comprised of Clarity; Family Connection of SC; KidVentures of Thrive Upstate; Medical-Legal Partnership (SC Legal Services, GHS, and Furman University), and four programs of the Greenville Health System: Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics, Kidnetics, The Wonder Center, and Prosthetics and Orthotics. CDS and its partners serve over 6,800 children and their families each year on property donated by the First Presbyterian Church at 29 North Academy Street in Greenville.
