The Providence Children’s Center was established in the early 1980’s as a Neurodevelopmental Center, initially to compensate for children with special health needs that did not have primary health providers. We see children from birth through two years of age in the natural environment. For children three and older, services are provided in the clinic. In addition to the outpatient setting, we also provide therapy services to children in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).
Services and specialists available:
- Family Resource Coordination
- Speech Pathology
- Occupational Therapy
- Physical Therapy
- Social work
- Behavior analysis
Providence Boyden Family Autism Center
Providence Intensive Day Treatment program is a 12 week naturalistic intervention for children needing some of the foundational skills to be successful in group settings such as developmental preschool and kindergarten. Our multi-disciplinary team conducts multiple evaluations in order to be confident in giving an accurate diagnosis of autism to a child. The multidisciplinary team approach allows us to observe and assess the child in different situations and under different criteria as a whole person. This approach is more time consuming but the information that is obtained is valuable from the diagnostic perspective and the treatment plan.

Camp Prov is in its 21st year as a summer day camp program at Forest Park in Everett that provides fun and education for about 400 children with special needs and their siblings. This very popular five week event benefits the children and their families through socialization, singing, crafts, outdoor activities, and swimming. We tailor each child’s activities to their needs, whether physical, emotional, behavioral or sensory. We also welcome siblings of these children with special needs as they are deserving of special time also!
