General Info

DALLAS DAY SCHOOL Dallas Day School has grown into an inclusive early education program that provides an opportunity for children with and without special needs to develop, learn and grow together. DDS provides all children with the opportunities to achieve their potential; socially, emotionally, physically and cognitively. DDS is a year-round program that utilizes child-focused instructional strategies based upon developmental milestones and individual goals/objectives. The ultimate goal of the program is to help parents and families create a solid foundation for future learning. THE LOW VISION CLINIC The Low Vision Clinic was established to provide assistance to all individuals experiencing vision problems which could not be corrected with glasses or surgery. At the request of community members and agencies, the Low Vision Clinic began providing low-cost vision examinations and glasses. Today, the Low Vision Clinic provides vision and low vision services to all individuals regardless of age, disability, gender, etc. MESQUITE DAY SCHOOL Mesquite Day School is a comprehensive program that encompasses both an Early Head Start and a preschool for children, with and without special needs, from low-income families. Early Head Start offers an intensive set of core services to children from birth to three years of age who must meet certain income requirements or be a foster child or homeless. The preschool aspect of Mesquite Day School provides a quality inclusive early education to children from low-income families. INCLUSION/SPECIAL NEEDS AWARENESS & ADVOCACY PROGRAM (S.N.A.A.P.) Dallas Services endeavors to educate and train families of children with special needs in how to advocate for their child in the school system and the community. Dallas Services has a dedicated Inclusion Specialist who works with Dallas Day School and Mesquite Day School to ensure our children with special needs are receiving the best early education possible. The Inclusion Specialist also connects families with community resources and continues assisting the families after they have graduated from our programs.

It is with deepest gratitude that we thank you all for attending our 2nd Annual Chips for Charity event! The sense of community was demonstrated in so many ways: the volunteers who assisted, the gracious and enthusiastic guests whose presence made the evening so special and the casino auction so much fun, those who purchased tickets knowing they couldn’t attend, and the staff, Board members and Committee members whose footsteps we follow as we continue the mission of Dallas Services. We are blessed to have so many who understand, embrace and live the motto Serviam each and every day. Without your continuous support, none of our success would be possible. We hope to see you again on September 20th for our Vision for the Future Gala at Tower Club! For more information, or to be put on our email and guest list, please contact Venessa Morse at vmorse@dallasservices.org.
