About the agency:

Wonderland Developmental Center (WDC) is a nonprofit early-intervention agency for infants and toddlers with developmental delays and disabilities, and their families. Founded in 1969 by GFWC Choshi Junior Women's Club, Wonderland Developmental Center’s genesis was a way for young children with developmental disabilities to receive early intervention; at that time, there were few such intervention programs. The program continued to grow over the next few years through a partnership between the Club and many committed parents. WDC serves families from throughout north King and south Snohomish counties by providing: Developmental assessment, testing, and evaluation; Occupational, speech, and physical therapy (coming soon); and special education; Parent support and resources; and Play & Learn groups open to children of all abilities and their caretakers.
