Who We Serve
The Robbie Foundation is dedicated to assisting children with developmental disabilities* (including, but not limited to physical disabilities, speech and language delays, sensory integrated disorders, cerebral palsy, brain injury, autism spectrum disorders, cognitive challenges). We serve children between the ages of birth and 20 years residing in the state of Maine.
Our primary mission is to fund adaptive equipment, assistive technology, therapy treatment, and/or any necessary item not covered by insurance. By providing such services, our hope is to improve the quality of life for children with special needs.
*Developmental disabilities are a diverse group of severe chronic conditions that are due to mental and/or physical impairments. People with developmental disabilities have problems with major life activities such as language, mobility, learning, self-help, and independent living. Developmental disabilities begin anytime during development up to 22 years of age and usually last throughout a person’s lifetime.
