If you have a child with differences and disabilities, you know how difficult it can be to find resources, as well as ways for your child to connect and play with others. Here at ABQ Mom, we want to support families with children of all abilities to find community and have fun.

Autism Services

We are fortunate to have many practices in the Albuquerque area that specialize in the care, treatment, education, advocacy, and ongoing support for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

Resources for Kids with Learning Disabilities & ADHD in Albuquerque

Learning Disabilities & ADHD

No one wants to see their child be frustrated or struggle through school. Use this list to find your kiddos the help they need. Because the great news is that children with learning disabilities and ADHD can, and do, succeed.

Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy is a branch of healthcare that helps people of all ages who have physical, sensory, or cognitive problems. Occupational therapy can help people gain control of their lives.

Physical Therapy

If you have noticed that your child is delayed in their physical development, or if they have a condition that affects their motor skills, physical therapy may be what they need. There are many benefits to physical therapy which include reducing pain, increasing mobility, and managing chronic illness.

Resources and Organizations

A strong support system is so important for anyone. Some benefits include higher levels of well-being, better coping skills, and a longer, healthier life. This support is especially important to families who have a child with differences and disabilities.


Students with learning differences or other disabilities may have a hard time learning and adapting to a traditional style of schooling. Specific schools exist to help these students get a quality education in an environment that is better suited to their needs. This ensures that every child can reach their full potential.

Sensory-Friendly Family Activities

It’s always fun to spend time as a family. Whether that be outdoors, exploring something new, or finding ways to be creative. It’s even more fun when you are doing activities that everyone can participate in. Albuquerque has so many sensory-friendly activities that the whole family is sure to enjoy.

Speech Therapy

One of the most important things we do each day is communicate with each other. For some children with differences and disabilities, this is not always easy. Speech therapy can help kids (and adults) communicate better and break down barriers resulting from speech impediments.
