Developmental Disabilities Services

Burke developmental disabilities services are tailored for each client’s personal and unique needs. We work with each client and family member to develop the most appropriate course of care that will help achieve individual goals.

Burke provides Crisis Intervention Services to support individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) with significant behavioral and psychiatric challenges. These individuals often exhibit substantial needs requiring additional support beyond the array of services typically provided within our community programs. Resources are expanded to address crisis situations with individuals who have IDD. Learn more here.

Burke provides a diverse array of housing opportunities for individuals with IDD, including Host Companion Care. Host Companion care provides supportive and caring home environments to individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities. Learn more here.

Burke Industries provides some clients an opportunity to obtain job skills training and ongoing employment.

Developmental disability services at Burke require an intake appointment at which the individual’s history, diagnoses, and needs are evaluated.

The parent, legal guardian, primary caregiver or individual may request services by calling 936-639-1479 or toll-free at 1-800-621-1523. A staff member will gather basic information about the individual, explain the intake process and schedule an initial appointment.
