Dallas Services’ Day School focuses on providing a quality learning environment for the children and families we serve. The learning environment is centered on educating children in a way that supports children’s growth in the following domains: language and literacy, cognition and general knowledge, physical development and health, social and emotional development and approaches to learning. Our schools emphasize helping children meet developmentally appropriate school readiness goals and providing inclusive care and education for children with special needs. The Dallas Day School actively recruits children with special needs and serves families of all socioeconomic levels and varying backgrounds.
Dallas Services works to enable individuals with disabilities and other special needs to achieve their potential by fostering community inclusiveness and independence.
