Started in 2006, the Summit Center for Child Development (originally Summit Speech and Language) has been focused on bringing high quality intervention to Lewis County. We began as a small clinic providing Speech and Language Services. As demand grew the need to expand into Occupational and Physical Therapy to meet the needs of our community became apparent. We are proud to announce comprehensive services including Speech & Language Therapy, Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy to best serve the littlest clients of Lewis County!
We offer outpatient therapies in all three domains and Early Intervention through the Growing Together program.
