Macau Child Development Expansion Center

MCDA is going to have two other centres: one centre is located across from MCDA's current location and the centre will be in Macau. These locations will help us to expand our services so that even more children will have access to the vital services of Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and Special Education. The increase in physical space will also allow us to include an area for the highly specialized equipment used in Occupational Therapy for children with motor and sensory integration disorders. This is a dream that MCDA has had for many years and it is finally being realized. We trust you share in this excitement as we move toward this goal.
