Elyria Developmental Center inspired by a dream from God to open a center in Elyria Ohio for children with autism and their families. A community center that will offer activities and educational programs; the founders began to execute that dream by purchasing the building in a public auction in 2015.
Elyria Developmental Center is to provide individuals with autism and developmental delays and their families the opportunity to develop skills, interact, and enjoy an enriching, safe, and family oriented environment. In order to achieve this purpose, Elyria Developmental Center will be offering activities and educational programs for children who have special needs and require specialized programs and therapies.
The programming will be based on a developmental model which offers a wide variety of activities including language stimulation, motor development, self-help skill development, play, educational learning and other creative activities which will be designed to each individual’s needs. Our programs will be designed and lead by trained professionals with degrees in their respective fields.
