The mission of the Center for Children and Families is to serve as a resource for the identification and prevention of developmental disorders in children 5 years old and younger.  The Center connects families and provides guidance as well as services that may help prevent developmental problems.  For more information about the Center, here is a link to their website: https://ccf.utdallas.edu/
