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 2,200 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.

As a resource for the Dallas area since 1968, 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.
