The Warren Center, a nonprofit agency providing professional evaluations, therapy services and support to children with developmental delays and disabilities invited the children they serve to celebrate Spring in the Park. The annual event is designed for children and their families to celebrate spring in a sensory-friendly way. Families served by The Warren Center were invited to Woodland Park to participate in fun activities for the entire family including a bubble bus, free snow cones from Kona Ice and much more.
The CDC estimates one in six children have intellectual or physical disabilities or delays. In Dallas County alone, over 102,000 children have a developmental disability. The period between birth to five years is a time of rapid development. The earliest possible intervention is critical due to the accelerated brain development during these first years of life. The Warren Center provides professional evaluations, therapy services and support to children with developmental delays and disabilities. The center serves over 1,000 children each week as well as their families. Services include speech, occupational and physical therapy; developmental services; and nutrition as well as family education and support. The Early Childhood Intervention Program serves the entire northern half of Dallas County in 48 ZIP codes. Founded in 1968, 2018 marked The Warren Center’s 50th anniversary.
