The Learning Center believes that students excel when they are provided with individualized instruction, a strengths-based approach to learning and a safe, nurturing environment.
Progressive Pediatric Developmental Center (PPDC) is a non-profit 501(c)3 tax exempt organization incorporated in November 2009. PPDC was founded on the premise that children with disabilities and their families need one main location that encompasses quality therapies and interventions, progressive and life-skills education, and behavioral services. The ultimate goal of Progressive Pediatric Developmental Center is to provide all services needed by children with disabilities and their families.
