Children’s Development Center

Located in Baton Rouge, LA, The Emerge Center’s Children’s Development Center provides multiple interventions, from a number of disciplines, under one roof. Our nurturing professional staff works together and one-on-one with each child. We also work with you as the family to identify specific goals and develop a customized therapy plan for him or her, based on diagnosis, age, and skill level. At Emerge, we know the struggles parents face, and our expert staff is equipped to guide you along the path that is right for your child.

Early childhood is a critical period of development. This program equips children to become more self-sufficient and independent to succeed in school by building the following skills:

  • basic communication
  • emergent literacy/language
  • social
  • early academic/school readiness
  • self-help
  • fine motor
  • sensory processing
  • adaptive behavior

The Child at the Focus


Emerge was built with the goal of providing a continuum of care in one center. Not only does it create better results for our little friends on a daily basis. (Progress made in one area is immediately built upon in the next session, and common goals are reinforced across services.) We also know that for parents, coordinating communication and care among numerous providers is stressful at best, not to mention the hassle of transportation. At Emerge, you can rest assured that our providers are working as a team every day to encourage success for your child. Our therapy staff is always accessible to answer a quick question, provide advice, or simply share in your joys or struggles.

The Children’s Development Center serves children with or suspected of communication, sensory-motor, developmental, and other issues in an inter-disciplinary format, by providing the following services:

Our Programs for Children with Autism  are offered through the Children’s Development Center, and offer tailored intervention for children with or suspected of an Autism Spectrum Disorder diagnosis.
