Resources for Parents

Your child’s therapist may suggest resources that are specific to your child’s diagnosis and treatment plan. In addition, our team put together a list of resources that may be helpful for parents and caregivers of children who have a variety of developmental disabilities and/or mental health challenges.

If you are purchasing books (or anything!) on Amazon, please consider designating Developmental FX as your preferred charity on Amazon Smile. They donate a percentage of every purchase you make back to your designated nonproft. 

We appreciate your support and hope you will find these resources helpful. Please feel free to let us know if you’ve found other sources of information and inspiration that you’d like us to add to this list!
