Caring for a loved one with an intellectual disability brings about unique challenges.
The AADD Family Support Center, located in Decatur, provides a dedicated space, services and programs designed to help metro Atlanta families impacted by developmental disabilities work through the challenges they face.
Services are available to any family and delivered by a team of seasoned consultants. Our team helps families navigate the issues involved with caring for a loved one with an intellectual disability such as transitioning out of the school system, helping aging parents set up a long-term care plan for their child, providing strategies to address behavioral issues, giving waiver application assistance and serving as an advocate for the transition IEP process.
The center uses a fee-based model to provide community programs and direct services to families caring for a loved one with a developmental disability. Our Family Support Center team aims to say “yes” to families when they reach out for help.
