Special Needs Resource Center

The Work and Play Special Needs Resource Center provides a central location for therapy, gatherings, and information for those with developmental disabilities of all ages and their caregivers.  Think of us as a hub for the special needs community. Having a resource center simplifies access to things needed to care for someone with developmental disabilities, which is desperately needed in an often complicated life with a child with special needs.

That’s why we offer memberships to individuals, businesses and families, to support our efforts in providing resources and services to Southeast Michigan's special needs community.

Our Team.

Work and Play Center is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing a safe and supportive environment for individuals with special needs. The center is run by a diverse group of volunteers that includes professionals, special needs parents, and community members who are passionate about helping individuals with special needs reach their full potential.
