Resources

  • Regional Centers – Regional centers are nonprofit private corporations that contract with the Department of Developmental Services to provide or coordinate services and supports for individuals with developmental disabilities.
  • WarmLine – A resource and support service for families of infants and young children with special needs.
  • Mind Institute – This organization primarily researches Autism Spectrum Disorders or similar disorders but is not a primary provider of intervention services.
  • Developmental Disability Area Board 3 – A state run organization helping to provide advocacy of parents.  Keep in mind this group has a limited number of people trying to help a large number of people.
  • Occupational therapists – Schools will often be able to provide this service if your child has OT issues that significantly effect their functioning at school.  Otherwise, there are several private pay therapists available, many of which are good.  I have had experience with Carolyn M. Ecker who shares the same office and recommend her services.
  • Speech therapists – Schools will often be able to provide this service if your child has OT issues that significantly effect their functioning at school.  Otherwise, there are several private pay therapists available, many of which are good.  I have had experience with Kaary Ogard who shares the same office and recommend her services.
  • Neurologists – While I know of a few child neurologists in the Sacramento area, there are none that I would strongly recommend at this time.
