“Connections” is a wonderful resource for families looking to find services in the Dallas-Fort Worth area for individuals with special needs. It lists over 520 resources for parents- therapists, doctors, stores, etc. The publication was founded by a local father, Lamarque Polvado, who has a child on the autism spectrum. Lamarque always wished he had a “go-to” resource when his daughter was younger. Since nothing like that existed, he created it! The print copy is in its 3rd edition, with the 4th edition due in September. Connections can be found at many locations throughout the metroplex, including Speech TX! You can also check out their website for listings at http://connectionskids.com/ And if you are a local resource provider, contact Connections to be included!
