Child Development Support office is a private, community-based organization established in 2016 to provide a range of language training and social services to handicapped children and their families in the district of Okayama.
The mission of KIDS*FIRST is to provide programs that empower children and their families by helping them to learn Japanese and eventually to improve their ability to survive in the real world. Initially, a nationwide study named Strategic Research for Sensory Dysfunction (primary research leader: Dr. K Fukushima) was developed along with the demonstration of both the importance and efficacy of language training for school-aged hearing-impaired children. In the beginning, our major focus was solely on language training; however, we have evolved into a multi-service organization that now provides a wide range of services for children, youth, and families..
