Washington Mardi Gras Child Development Giving Campaign
The Michael R. Boh Center for Child Development is dedicated to improving the lives of children and adolescents with developmental disorders through comprehensive interdisciplinary team evaluations, integrated treatment protocols, high quality evidence-based patient care, direction of special education services, and professional education and research. With the Michael R. Boh Center for Child Development, parents and their families in the Gulf South are able to find the multidisciplinary care, specialty services and the resources they need under one roof. The Michael R. Boh Center for Child Development is here to help children overcome challenges, develop their unique talents and reach their full potential. For some children, realizing their potential might mean a little extra help in the classroom or special tools to support communication with the world around them. For others, intensive therapies to overcome the effects of complex neuromuscular conditions make all the difference. No matter what the ability or challenge, children and families need reliable, compassionate, coordinated, and comprehensive care in partnership with a team they trust. The Boh Center offers personalized, family-centered patient care in one location.
Your donation to this campaign will support the Neurodevelopmental Consultation and Education Initiative for Louisiana through the Michael R Boh Center for Child Development at Ochsner Children’s Hospital. This innovative and unique program will impact children across the state of Louisiana by supporting children and adolescents with Autism, ADHD, Down Syndrome, learning and behavioral challenges and complex medical and genetic conditions in their own communities by connecting child development specialists to pediatricians across the state. Pediatricians will have the opportunity to directly consult with Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Speech Language Therapists, Social workers, Child and Adolescent Psychologists, ABA behavioral therapists, and Developmental behavioral pediatricians so that children can receive high quality specialized care in their own communities across Louisiana. Funding will also be used to also create a training program aimed at increasing the number of therapists and physicians who are practicing in Louisiana, which will allow those children across the state who are most vulnerable to access the care they need more quickly.
Thank you to the generous donors who help make this work possible.
