Información en Español »



I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for visiting the National Children’s Center website. We hope to provide you with helpful information regarding our innovative programs, valued services, and most importantly, our dedicated mission to provide a lifetime of opportunities to infants, children and adults with developmental disabilities.

National Children's Center, Inc. (NCC) is a recognized leader in offering comprehensive services to the developmentally disabled in the District of Columbia and Maryland. I am honored to lead this wonderful organization and I am proud to partner with the people that we serve, their families and other committed advocates to work toward a clearer vision for the future. We believe that people with developmental disabilities should have every resource necessary in order to learn, live, work, grow and thrive in their communities - which fully embrace them as valued and contributing members of society.

We invite you to partner with us in this endeavor, and encourage you to contact us directly to find out more about our organization, as we work to support, sustain and empower those within this special community.

Interim CEO


Nonja Tiller has been a resident within NCC’s Community Living Services program since 2003. She is a very talented artist and has always desired to successfully publish a book of her thought-provoking and oftentimes biographical illustrations. With the help and support of her amazing NCC team, she is taking courageous steps toward finally fulfilling her goal. Please listen to her story in the video below:


National Children’s Center is pleased and excited to officially announce the launch of our “I AM” Campaign, showcasing the ABILITIES (rather than DISabilities) that exist within our special needs individuals.



These campaign posters are also designed to highlight the different services that NCC provides in the metropolitan area – maintaining our mission of providing a lifetime of opportunities for the developmental disabilities community that we serve.
