Community and Clinical Services

The Georgetown University Center for Child and Human Development (GUCCHD) provides multi-disciplinary clinical services to support children, youth, and adults (with disabilities). Our goal is to improve the quality of life for children and families in the Washington DC metropolitan area served by other community agencies.

Our Center has a commitment to partnering with community-based organizations to provide services and support in the neighborhoods where individuals live, work and play. An emphasis is placed on support that is responsive to individual needs, culture and language. We offer services both within the Georgetown/ MedStar medical center and in the DC community.

Our Center faculty provides clinical services to and supports for individuals who experience a range of physical, intellectual, and behavioral challenges across the lifespan.

The Center’s ongoing workforce development, technical assistance, and research/evaluation efforts are all informed by our experience delivering services to vulnerable children and families in the Washington DC metropolitan area and beyond.
