The Ohio State University Nisonger Center was founded in 1966, among the first group of federally funded University Centers for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities. We are widely respected for our interdisciplinary research, education and clinical services. The Nisonger Center is proud to be part of The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center and Office of Health Sciences. We have a strong and dynamic team of researchers, clinicians, teachers, staff and trainees who strive to improve the lives of persons with disabilities and their families across the lifespan.
As the largest provider of oral health services in Franklin County for adults with developmental disabilities, it is critical for the dental clinic at Ohio State’s Nisonger Center to have the most up-to-date technology. [read more....] http://dentistry.osu.edu/journal/story/care-ful-collaboration

This year Nisonger Center is embarking on an exciting initiative to build a new playground for our Early Childhood Education Program. This new playground will span more than 12,000 square feet directly outside of our facility and cost more than $300,000.
However, we can only make this playground a reality for our children with your help. By supporting our playground campaign, you will be giving children with special needs the opportunity to learn, laugh and play in an accessible environment conducive to their development.
We are planning a series of events in 2016 and would like to hear from you!
