Finding the right resources for children with disabilities can be a difficult and drawn-out process. Parents find themselves sifting through countless care providers, educators, therapists, specialists, and other professionals, taking into account factors like location, service type, reviews, cost, and quality. Many hospitals and medical professionals won't recommend resources to patients and their families due to time constraints. As a result, parents may research for weeks or months to find the best services for their child.
To assist you in your research, we've created a comprehensive tool that summarizes the disability resources in different parts of Georgia. Here, you'll find details about educational and developmental tools, therapies, and health resources for children of all ages and their families. We've separated these resources into different categories and provided brief descriptions about the type of programs and features offered. We hope that this guide will assist families in finding the help their child needs.
Please note that some of these resources may be undergoing changes due to the COVID-19 crisis. Please be sure to check their website for further details.
We hope you find this guide to be of use! Please note that we have not personally verified the quality of services provided by each of these organizations; much of the information comes from internet searches. When considering resources for yourself or a loved one, we recommend that you conduct your own research.
