Milestones Therapeutic Associates is excited to announce its exclusive participation in The Valley Nutrition Study.

Milestones partnered with The Johnson Center for Child Health Development out of Austin, Texas (formerly known as Thoughtful House Center for Children) to participate in a ground-breaking study involving the dietary and nutritional status of children with a developmental delay or disorder. This three-year study has been headed by a clinical nutritionist, aided by a psychologist, registered nurse, and a social worker to collect data which might influence positive legislative changes for children in Texas. This study was extended through a grant written by The Johnson Center after the eye-opening results and the great need they witnessed through their collaboration with Milestones.

Previous research has shown that children with developmental delays or disorders are particularly vulnerable to nutritional deficiencies. This study investigates how nutritional intervention may impact nutritional and dietary outcomes. The population of children and young adults with chronic and/or developmental issues, with which Milestones work, will benefit greatly from participation in this study with ongoing, subsequent recommendations for supporting optimal nutritional intake for positive functional gains.

If you are interested in participating in this study, please call Valerie Nevarez at (956) 661-0475 or email to find out the qualifying factors for inclusion in this opportunity for change.
