Helping children with developmental difficulties
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 serves children who are experiencing such developmental difficulties as learning problems, physical fitness and coordination problems, language delays, emotional issues or orthopedic challenges.
During clinic sessions, children participate in one-to-one, individualized motor development training. They can also be enrolled in the language development or reading development programs at the site.
Student volunteers are needed to help during the fall and spring semesters. They must register for OCC-334 (Clinician Pre-Clinic Training) or OCC-327 (Child Development, Clinician-T) and attend at least one of the pre-clinic training sessions.
Next Pre-Clinic Training
The pre-clinic training sessions for the spring 2019 semester will take place in February, 2019. The first on February 2 and the second on February 9. Both will be held 8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Training for PGCC students will be located in Novak Field House (Largo Campus), and training for University of Maryland Students will be held in the School of Public Health building.
Although students may register in advance, in-person registration on the morning of the training session is preferred.
All volunteers must, prior to working with children, complete fingerprinting and a criminal background check. These services are provided to volunteers at no cost by Prince George's Community College as part of the pre-clinic training.
