Caring For Children with Special Needs in St. Louis

We are thankful that many parents of children with disabilities or injuries trust the lawyers at Zevan Davidson Roman to pursue medical malpractice or personal injury claims on behalf of their children. However, because these claims take time to process, the family may not see a recovery for months or years after consulting us. In the meantime, parents often struggle to find the resources they need in order to care for their children. They may also worry their child is not receiving the same opportunities as their peers.

Thankfully, there are many local, regional, and national organizations dedicated to making life easier for children with disabilities and their families during such a difficult time. These organizations may have different requirements or limitations on the resources they provide, depending on the family’s unique circumstances.

Below, we’ve included a list of organizations our past clients have worked with and some of the services they offer. We encourage you to visit to each organization’s website to learn how they may best benefit you.
