The Children’s Developmental Clinic is a community service program that is conducted by the Workforce Development and Continuing Education division at Prince George's Community College. The clinic provides a special service to children who are experiencing various developmental difficulties such as learning problems, physical fitness and coordination problems, language delays, emotional problems or orthopedic challenges. During the sessions, children participate in one-to-one, individualized motor development training. If additional assistance is needed, children can be enrolled in the language development or reading development programs at the Clinic.
Volunteers are needed during the fall and spring semesters. To volunteer for the Children's Developmental Clinic, students must register for OCC-334 or OCC-327 and attend at least one of two pre-clinic training sessions. For the Spring 2019 semester, pre-clinic training will occur on Saturday, February 2nd and Saturday, February 9th from 8:30am-12:30pm in Novak Field House (Largo Campus) for PGCC students and in the School of Public Health Building (UMD Campus) for UMD students. You may register in advance. However, we prefer that you register in-person at one of the pre-clinic training sessions. Prior to working with any children, volunteers are required to complete fingerprinting and a criminal background check. Prince George's Community College will provide these services to the volunteers at no cost, as part of their pre-clinic training.
