About The Warren Center
This year in the Dallas Metroplex alone, one in 20 children will be born with a special need, one in 89 children will be diagnosed with autism and 85,000 children will need services to help them develop and thrive. At The Warren Center, it is our goal to provide services to these children and their families. More than 1,400 families each year count on The Warren Center to be “first responders,” reaching out to them with early detection and developmental strategies for their child.
For over 45 years The Warren Center has provided Early Childhood Intervention to children birth to three, working closely with families to ensure that every child has continued success, however, these children are only eligible for these services until they are three. Families will now have the option to continue therapy once their child turns three and new families, who are just discovering their child’s special needs, will have a place to go. Since 2006, The Warren Center has grown exponentially since the groundbreaking and recently expanded to include new center-based therapy services for children three to five years of age. This unique program offers individual and group therapy for children showing delays or disabilities in communication, social skills, motor/coordination skills, and sensory processing.
As a resource for the Dallas area, The Warren Center has provided over 15,000 families with needed tools, including individualized therapy for their child's developmental delay, critical information and resources on developmental milestones, and guidance as parents become advocates for their child's future. Even as our service area has grown from a small group focused on the Richardson area to a large organization serving families all over the northeast quadrant of Dallas County and beyond, we stay focused on the families and children we serve.
