Early Childhood Intervention (ECI) services help Texans, ages 0-3, with developmental delays, disabilities, or other early warnings of potential problems. The ECI Advocacy Coalition was formed in 2010 by Texans Care for Children and the Texas Council for Developmental Disabilities, along with The ARC of Texas, Advocacy, Inc., and the Texas Council of Community Centers, to share information and coordinate advocacy efforts in support of a quality ECI system in Texas. The goal is to achieve a sustainable ECI system that reaches young children and families in need of early intervention services.Drink Well Texas

We promote putting Big SODA back in its place, so that sweet drinks can be occasional treats, not every-day drinks for children.Infant Health AllianceBringing better health from the very beginning is the goal of members of the Texas Infant Health Alliance.
