Is your child under age 22? Does he or she have a medical, physical, or intellectual or developmental disability? Do you need to find services to help with home, work or school life?
If your child has a disability, he or she has the right to attend school. Please contact one of these groups to find out how:
- Your local school district
- Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired
- Texas School for the Deaf
If your child under age 3 has a disability or developmental delay, contact the Early Childhood Intervention Program.
Getting a Job or Advanced Training
Once your child is out of school, he or she may be able to get help preparing for a job and moving into the workforce. Visit the Employment First website to learn more.
Help From DADS
DADS offers home and community services for children with disabilities. Services may include medical care through Medicaid, attendant care in your home or modifying your home to make it easier for your child to live in. These services may be different than what is available through your local school district or other state agencies.
