My daughter Emily was diagnosed with Down Syndrome. LaunchAbility provided us the tools, therapy and training to help our daughter develop her gross and fine motor skills and speech during her formative years. While the state mandates the public schools take responsbility for her development during PK-12, we will be back to LaunchAbility when she graduates as they have an excellent career services program that places clients with employers to provide career opportunities (not just jobs).

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My daughter has exceed doctors' and therapists' expectations and is doing well in school.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Increase its coverage area to serve more clients.

My son was shaken when he was two months old by someone that was very trusted. At that moment, my world feel apart! He was in the hospital for 6 weeks. When he came home, I was lost and did not know where to turn. Luckily, an Early Chiildhood Intervention program did a community outreach presentation at the Head Start of Greater Dallas organization. My sister-in-law is a Social Worker there and referred me to the program. We were sent to Special Care & Career Services for help. They contacted me and we began our jouney together to help my son heal from his brain injury. By the time my son graduated from the program, he had improved tremendously. The Occupational Therapist had him crawling around the house, the Speech Therapist had him communicating to me in sign language and the Early Childhood Interventionist had him enrolled in horse riding therpy. Without the help and support of this wonderful organization, my son would not be where he is today. He is in school doing very well but misses his team at Special Care & Career Services, too!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Laying the foundation for his continued progress.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Have fun working with everyone.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The people at Special Care & Career. They are phenomenal!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Dedicated to making a difference in their community.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Serve all the children of Texas and more.

Ways to make it better...

They had more group activities.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Keeping up with the growing number of clients.

One thing I'd also say is that...

It has been a great experience!
