About Us

The Georgetown University Early Interventions Professional Development Center is a component of the Georgetown University Center for Child and Human Development (GUCCHD). The GUCCHD’s mission is to improve the quality of life for all children and youth, children with special needs, adults with developmental and other disabilities, and their families. A division of Georgetown University’s Department of Pediatrics, the Center is founded on an interdisciplinary approach to service, training, research, community outreach, technical assistance, and public policy.

In keeping with that mission, the Early Childhood Division is designed for early intervention and early childhood professionals across disciplines.  It is a workforce development project that brings together our many training resources to support and enrich the knowledge and skills of service providers, administrators, and policy makers in providing family-centered, comprehensive, coordinated, community-based systems of services for infants, toddlers, and young children with developmental delay or disability in the District of Columbia and across the country.
