CHILD DEVELOPMENT CENTRE

INTRODUCTION

Apollo Gleneagles Hospitals (AGH), Kolkata has established the first Child Development Center (CDC) in Eastern India.

Situated at the 3rd floor of Daycare Centre, this unique service is for the children with special needs. About 1% of childhood population suffers from Autism or related disorders worldwide.
