The center offers live, in-person behavior, occupational, physical, and speech therapy, as well as teletherapy options during the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency.

Thanks to the generous support of donors and organizations, including the Taft Foundation and Children’s Services Council (CSC), Daisy Village at BCC is able to strive to give access to high-quality therapy support to all families in need. Daisy Village’s programming is expanding this summer to include low-cost therapeutic groups offered to children with special needs or developmental concerns. These groups will enrich social skill development, language and motor learning, and self-regulation skills.
Offerings will include Legos and Lunch, Messy Art, Stay and Play, Let’s Go Drumming, a choir and music lessons. Daisy Village will also be starting a Mommy and Me music group for young children led by a board-certified music therapist.

According to the US Census Bureau, over 1 in 5 individuals in Broward County are diagnosed with some sort of disability. Many families struggle with finding the appropriate care for their children. Often times, even when that care can be found, the families are left with the massive coordination task of juggling appointments at many different centers. Daisy Village at BCC was created to offer comprehensive care under one roof.
“Success comes in the ability to recognize new and better ways to serve,” stated Marjorie Evans, CEO and Founder. “We’re always looking for ways to improve the service we provide to the community that lives with special needs,” she added.
Due to COVID restrictions, one-on-one tours by appointment are open for the community and the media on the second Thursdays of May and June 2021. Our center is following strict CDC health guidelines.
