Some of the Needs We Serve
Alma provides a wide range of mental health counseling and support to children, adolescents, adults and their families who are experiencing significant emotional problems.
Developmental Disabilities include mental retardation (intellectual disabilities), cerebral palsy, epilepsy, and autism, in addition to conditions closely related to mental retardation (intellectual disabilities) or requiring similar treatment. These conditions must originate before age eighteen (18), continue, or be expected to continue indefinitely, and constitute a substantial handicap.
