The Texas Office for Prevention of Developmental Disabilities exists to educate, motivate, and empower all Texans to do their part to promote children's health.
Our mission is to prevent the occurrence of disabilities whenever possible and reduce their impact when it's not. Today we know more than ever about preventing disabilities, especially those caused by preventable child injuries and prenatal alcohol exposure. We also know that improving children's access to services can reduce the impact of their disabilities. TOPDD is protecting children, securing their future and ours.
