Intellectual and Developmental DisabilityServices
Burke’s intellectual and developmental disability 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.
Intellectual and 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.
Burke provides a diverse array of services for individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD). These services are provided through Texas Health and Humans Service’s Intermediate Care Facilities for Individuals with IDD, Texas Home Living and Home and Community-based Services programs.
