Signs and Symptoms of Developmental Delay

Here’s what parents have to say…

Our child was a preemie, and we worried about getting her the help she might need. Archild developed a specialized therapy program for her and kept us involved the whole way through. Now she is thriving and learning more everyday. My family can’t express our gratitude enough to this school.


Archild has been one of the best choices we made for our son. We were amazied at how much progress he made in his time being there. From walking, to talking and communicating his emotions, he’s adapted so well. He enjoys his school and is always so happy to attend. We are so very thankful for everyone on staff!


Archild preschool has been by far the best decision I have made for my son’s therapy care! He started receiving services at Archild when he was an infant and is currently three years old. I have watched his team of therapists work diligently with him to develop the life skills he is now able to do on his own!
