The Special Abilities of North Texas board of directors has adopted this Strategic Plan for the next three years. Key volunteers and staff had input and this document is to provide a complete knowledge and belief in these critical and core values of our organization. With an “emerging” organization, these values can often change quickly without a decisive board review and formal adoption. The intent of review early in the Strategic planning process is to secure these values through at least the extent of the term of the strategic plan.

2014 MAJOR PROJECT:
After growing so rapidly due to such a high demand and great need in the community, we were near capacity at our Lewisville campus, daily receiving students and clients from Denton, Dallas and Tarrant Counties. We have more than doubled our numbers of clients served annually this past year. In March we proudly opened our second campus, in Flower Mound, Texas.
