D.C. opens center to diagnose developmental delays in young children

A $10 million facility to diagnose young children with developmental delays opened Wednesday in Washington, D.C., and education officials say they hope the Early Stages Center will help improve the district's special-education system by providing earlier treatment of young children with special needs. "One of the many things that has sort [of] plagued the District is the fact that there was an under-identification of young people before they started in the school system of their special needs," schools chancellor Michelle Rhee said.
