Our Programs & Services
Ability Connection has been helping Adults with disabilities since 1953 with programs and services to support families of anyone 18+ with physical or intellectual disabilities. But mid-2021, noticing a need in Dallas County among children in North, West and East Dallas, Ability Connection extended their quality, affordable, and accessible care to 10–17-year-olds with disabilities in the Dallas ISD and Coppell ISD. Today, these programs and services offer the following benefits to more than 150 children with disabilities, along with their parents/guardians:
- Prevents regression of social skills for tweens and teens during the summer months.
- Provides a safe and fun environment for tweens and teens with disabilities during holiday breaks.
- Provides a break for parents and guardians on weekends.
- Provides in-home assistance when parents/guardians need it.
Contact Us and experience firsthand how Ability Connection’s quality, affordable, and accessible care will transform the life of your 10–17-year-old while giving parents/guardians much needed time to relax, refresh, or catch up on tasks that seem to keep falling off your to-do list.
For children ages 10-17 with intellectual or other developmental disabilities who live in Dallas County. Financial assistance and discounts may be available to those who qualify, made possible by a generous grant from The Crystal Charity Ball.
