Twenty years ago in Northeast Ohio, five Amish families with children suffering from devastating conditions were trying to find answers. DDC Clinic – Center for Special Needs Children was born as a unique collaboration of families, medical professionals and research scientists. Started as a non-profit medical and research facility to serve local families affected by rare and undiagnosed genetic conditions, the Center quickly became an internationally recognized leader for diagnosis, treatment and research of many complex disorders. Early diagnosis and treatment has dramatically improved patient outcomes and saved lives.
With inspiration from our founding families to help others find answers, DDC Clinic Lab uses the expertise obtained through clinical service and research to serve a much broader range of patients and families.
