State of Texas Launches Resource Site for Special-Needs Children
The state of Texas has launched a new Web site providing information for parents of special-needs children (PRESS RELEASE).
“NavigateLifeTexas.org was built for anyone who needs to find relevant, comprehensive, and accurate information about services in Texas for children with disabilities and special health care needs. The site was designed by parents, for parents, but it’s a valuable resource for caregivers, clinicians, professionals, and support groups as well. A Spanish version of the site is at AvancemosJuntosTexas.org….
Categories on the website include ‘Diagnosis and Healthcare,’ ‘Insurance and Financial Help,’ ‘Family Support,’ ‘Education and Schools,’ and ‘Transition to Adulthood.’ Visitors can enter their ZIP code to search for support groups, services, and events that are specific to their region. The data provided on the site has been vetted by parents, physicians, parent organizations, subject matter experts, and state agencies.”
