Founded in 1957, Harwood Center is a private nonprofit agency that provides education, therapy and support for Mid-South families and children who have developmental disabilities. Since opening its doors, Harwood Center has helped more than 5,000 children with developmental disabilities get a better start in life.
Our program consists of specialized education and therapeutic services for children age 2 years through transition to kindergarten who have a diagnosed developmental disability or are experiencing delays in their development or have behavior challenges. Services are primarily offered at our two preschool locations Hanley and our CUBS classroom at U of M, and our clinic at the University of Memphis. These services are delivered by highly qualified staff led by licensed special education teachers, board certified behavior analysts, educational specialists & behavior technicians. Our goal is to help children reach their full potential by learning functional skills to enhance their development. Ongoing training and support is provided to our families.
