Our Mission

Providing family-focused developmental services to young children with special needs.

Britain Development, located within the B.E. Smith Family Center, is an important outreach program of AdventHealth Shawnee Mission, touching the lives of more than 5,000 children with special needs since 1972. Dedicated to serving children with special needs from birth through six years of age, Britain Development provides a unique program that involves family and friends in the process of therapeutic treatment and education.

Individualized programs are shaped for each child and family by a team of physical, occupational, and music therapists, speech language pathologists, early childhood special education teachers, behavior analysts, social workers, and paraprofessionals.
