Our Mission

The mission of the McMains Children's Developmental Center is to advance the quality of life for children and their families by providing physical, developmental, academic and communication services.

To live, work and play
independently.

Our Services

Our team works together to impact the lives of children and their families. We help kids play, learn, adapt, and communicate. Since no standard therapy works for all children, our team crafts an individual plan of treatment for each child. We wrap our core therapy services of speech and language therapy, occupational therapy and physical therapy with additional services and programs to address the unique needs of the whole child and family.

 

About the Center

 

HOW LONG WE’VE BEEN SERVING

The McMains Children’s Developmental Center (MCDC) began serving children with cerebral palsy in 1954. Since then, we have expanded our services to meet the needs of the community. We offer a full range of diagnostic, treatment and rehabilitation services for children with a variety of disabilities and developmental delays. Celebrate our 65th anniversary with us by joining the Developing Dreams Society!

 

WHERE WE GET OUR NAME

Originally named The United Cerebral Palsy Association of Greater Baton Rouge, Inc., we were renamed the McMains Children’s Developmental Center to honor the late Dr. Frank McMains who volunteered his orthopedic medical services to the children for over 33 years.
