In the last year, 1 in 6 children were diagnosed with a developmental delay or disability. THERAPY 2000 believes that a strong support system for the families of children with developmental delays or disabilities is of utmost importance.

That is why THERAPY 2000 has put together a comprehensive list of service resources available to our Texas families with children with developmental delays or disabilities. We have created two resource lists.

Remember- you are your child’s best advocate and it is important to remain informed to make the best decisions for their needs.
