According to the Centers for Disease Control, about 1 in 6 children in the United States had a developmental disability in 2006-2008, ranging from mild disabilities such as speech and language impairments to serious developmental disabilities, such as cerebral palsy, autism and intellectual disabilities. At The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth), researchers and clinicians are finding ways to give these children the early intervention and skills they need to live fulfilling lives.
