To The Pediatric
Development Center

The Pediatric Development Center is a leading provider of Occupational, Speech-Language, Physical and Feeding Therapies for children in the DC-metro area.

With two locations, our family services and therapy teams are committed to making the diagnostic and therapy process as easy on your family as possible. When your child is facing developmental challenges, you need a team that understands your priorities and advocates for you.


CONNECT. PDC’s family services team will answer all of your questions, guide you through the intake process, access third party reimbursement and assist you in finding additional community resources.

ACHIEVE. PDC therapists have tailored their skills to become specialized in their area of interest. Children under our care are assigned to therapists who have the specific expertise that you are seeking for your child.

PLAY AND ENGAGE. Children learn through play. At PDC, we play with our friends. We play with our words. We even play with our food. Play = Joyful Engagement = Learning and Growing.

DISCOVER. At PDC, children, families and employees discover what is possible.

Individualized, Research-Based, Driven by Your Child’s Personality and Interests

In infancy, babies are busy developing the foundations of language, play, movement and feeding. PDC’s team collaborates with other medical professionals to enhance early development skills.

The preschool years are social, playful and full of sensory-based experiences. PDC’s team of therapists keeps children joyfully engaged as they learn about themselves, others and the world.

School Age

A whole new set of expectations and challenges are added as children progress in school. The therapists at PDC support the development of skills children need inside and outside of the classroom.

When dental, articulation, feeding or dyslexia have been a lifelong concern, adults often decide to seek services. PDC provides therapy to adults to resolve oral coordination and reading difficulties.

We participate with BlueCross BlueShield, United Healthcare and Maryland Assistance Programs and also accept private pay.

“The Pediatric Development Center is organized, clean and most of all efficient and effective in what it does. One of my children receives therapy services here, and it has been stellar so far. I would recommend this location to any parent in search for an answer to the puzzle that children can be. You will have the peace of mind knowing that your child is working with skilled therapists. You will receive updates on the progress of your child, and will genuinely look forward to these sessions. The front office staff is very nice as well. Everyone here makes you feel like your child is special and deserving of reaching their full potential. I wish I would have known about this place sooner!”
