United Services for Children is a nonprofit organization that provides pediatric therapy and early intervention to children with developmental disabilities or delays by partnering with families to build a foundation for success.

Early Intervention

Early Intervention Services focus on children up to 36 months old who have a developmental delay or diagnosed disability and are currently receiving services through Missouri First Steps. This program provides a vital beginning to a child’s developmental progress.

Speech/Language Therapy
Occupational Therapy
Aqua Therapy
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)

Family Support

Our Social Worker and staff welcome new families into the agency and provides necessary information to make them feel at home at United Services.


You don’t have to be a therapist or teacher to help transform a child’s life. Anyone can do it, simply by making a donation to United Services for Children. With your help, a child who cannot communicate will learn to talk. A girl who cannot use her legs will learn to walk. A boy trapped in his own world will start making friends. Families who fear tomorrow will discover a future full of hope and possibility. The life-changing services we provide are only possible thanks to people like you. So please, donate today and help children build a foundation for success.
