  • TCDD Announces Grant to Improve Outreach to Asians


    The Texas Council for Developmental Disabilities awarded a $9,866 grant to Friends and Families of Asians with Special Needs for one year to improve the lives of people in ethnic minority cultures. This project will provide training to Asian parents and increase awareness in the public and private sectors concerning the barriers facing Asian families with children with intellectual and developmental disabilities. It also will help TCDD to better understand the different values, cultures and customs that exist in Texas and how cultural issues may impact how services should be provided.
