Find service providers in your area
A number of organizations with missions related to autism spectrum disorder (ASD), disabilities in general, or social services maintain and offer free databases of service providers in Texas. These databases may be helpful when searching for the services and resources necessary to support your needs, your loved one's needs or the needs of a client.
Databases can be searched by keywords, the type of services desired, ZIP code, and sometimes by city or county. The databases include a variety of service providers, such as state agencies, local MR authorities, intermediate care facilities, nonprofit organizations and private service providers. Available services range from applied behavior analysis therapy to summer camps for adults and children.
The Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services (DADS) does not endorse any of the organizations providing a database, nor does DADS endorse organizations listed in the databases. Further, DADS is not responsible for the quality of services or resources provided by organizations in the databases. Please exercise discretion, common sense and caution when selecting and using service providers and resources.
