DHC is named after the late Dick Howser, former Florida State University baseball coach, New York Yankees manager and Kansas City Royals Manager. Mr. Howser generously shared with us his time, resources, giving spirit, and good name. The Dick Howser Center for Childhood Services, Inc. is a non-profit agency that began in 1974 as a small parent group in Tallahassee.
We create an inclusive, nurturing environment for children with varying gifts and abilities. Encourage development of each child’s self esteem and personal independence. Minimize the effects of disabilities through early intervention, education, developmental pre-school, family support, therapy and other community based services.
We want to foster children and focus on the “whole child” by helping them grow and learn effectively through developmental play. Through the implementation of the Creative, High Reach, and Kindness Curriculums, we can help ensure the children at our center use their natural curiosity to learn, grow, and develop in the best learning environment.
Children with special needs are provided physical, occupational, & speech therapy services by therapists specializing in pediatrics. Therapists also accept referrals to provide services at DHC centers on an outpatient basis. Services are provided an atmosphere of partnership involving the individual, family members, teachers, therapists, board members, and other human services agencies and organizations.
Children, with or without disabilities, DESERVE a place like DHC where they can flourish and thrive.
