COVID-19 presents daily challenges to the mental health and well-being of all of us, including you, our families and children who are missing your regular visits to DFX.
In response, we have mobilized our efforts to provide alternate ways of being in touch, via phone, mail, social media (including our new Permission to Play youtube channel) and TELEHEALTH services.
Here are some quick links if you’d like to watch the Permission to Play videos.

We have added to every child’s services a check-in on how the family is doing – as we know that supporting all of our resilience is imperative to the children’s well-being and to continue to support their development. Our therapy is more essential than ever and therapy goals can be addressed through modified means.
Our team of expert clinicians is providing remote consultations and telehealth treatment for children, teens, and young adults for goals that were in place prior to the coronavirus and for struggles with mental health and self-regulation that may have emerged in light of the challenges we are all facing.
Please give us a call at 303.333.8360 or email info@developmentalfxorg, or be in touch with your own clinician(s) to discuss how we can support your family during this time.
