The Early Childhood Intervention Program serves the entire northern half of Dallas County in 48 ZIP codes. In celebration of Early Intervention Day on July 29, The Warren Center is pleased to present the Strong Start Virtual Conference sponsored by Reliant Energy. This event takes a focused look at common challenges faced by parents of children with developmental delays and disabilities, providing practical steps to overcome them. Industry experts will take a deep dive into a number of topics including brain development, enhancing language and motor skills, and building a child’s social-emotional skills.
Early Intervention Day educates local communities and raises public awareness of early intervention services for children. According to the CDC, acting early on developmental concerns can make a big difference in the lives of families impacted by developmental delays and disabilities. As an early intervention service provider, The Warren Center is proud to pioneer this celebration in the state of Texas. 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. EI programs have proven to show academic achievement, behavior, educational progression and attainment, and labor market success.
The free sessions will begin at 9 a.m. until noon on Friday, July 29, and will be available for parents and therapy providers in both English and Spanish. For more information and to register, please visit: thewarrencenter.org/strongstart
