The Baylor University Center for Developmental Disabilities (BCDD) concentrates on addressing the complex issues of autism and other developmental conditions through its cooperative research, educational, and service programs. The Center is a collaborative partnership between Baylor University and Baylor Scott & White McLane Children's, which is part of the Scott & White Health Care System.
The center’s services include programs such as the Applied Behavior Analysis Skill-Building Program, the Challenging Behavior Treatment Program, the Feeding and Mealtime Behavior Intervention Program, Autism Summer Day Camp, college support groups for students with autism, social skills groups, and the after-school Spring Literacy Clinic for children ages 3 to second grade.
The center’s staff includes volunteer advanced students within the School of Education’s programs. Therefore, the Center also serves as a training venue for students who are preparing for teaching careers and related professional careers in special education, applied behavior analysis, or educational psychology.
By contributing to the BCDD, you can help children with autism spectrum disorder and other developmental disabilities, while helping to train highly qualified teachers and therapists who will serve these children even more in the future.
