We are in the midst of a crisis like we have never seen before.  The COVID-19 pandemic has caused an unprecedented change in our lives.  The Paso del Norte Children’s Development Center (PdN Children’s) is committed to continue serving the children of our community who have special need with therapeutic and intervention services they need to be able to reach their fullest potential.  We are committed to support the families and parents of children with special needs to help them be able to them help their children, especially through these times.

We are delivering all of our services online so you can be in the safety of your homes and still be able to receive the services you need to help your children continue to grow.

This pandemic has caused us to temporarily suspend services in our Inclusive Early Learning Center (El Papalote) out an abundance of caution to protect the children we serve and the staff who deliver the service, but we are committed to opening back up as soon as it is safe to do so.

Please see below the contact numbers and email contacts for each of the services we continue to deliver or for any information you may need.

We are still here to support children in our community who have special needs and we are here to support any family who may need our help.

Please follow the stay-at-home guidelines and god bless the essential workers who have to be there for the rest of us.  Together, we will get through this terrible time.
