Family Infant Toddler Early Intervention

Family Infant Toddler Early Intervention is a service provided to families whose child is experiencing a delay in development or has been diagnosed with a disability, or who may have a condition which could cause a significant delay in their development.  Families receive assistance to help them learn how to support their child to reach his or her full potential. Children from birth up to age three are eligible for Early Intervention services.  Early Intervention services include Family Service Coordination, Developmental Instruction, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Speech Therapy and Family Counseling.

Respite Care

Respite is a service to families who are in need a short break from their natural caregiving duties of a child or an adult who is diagnosed with a developmental delay or disability. Abrazos Family Support Services contracts with providers who must go through a series of background checks and training to provide quality and safe care for the individual, while the caregiver has the opportunity to take time for themselves.

Family Living Program

The Family Living Program provides support to adults diagnosed with a developmental delay or disability to remain living in their own home, their family home, or a surrogate home.
