JAMESTOWN, N.D.—A nonprofit based here that serves people with developmental disabilities or delay is buying a Fargo business to add a specialty practice to its offerings.

Anne Carlsen Center announced Monday, Aug. 7, that it will acquire Fargo's Dakota Orofacial Myology, 3509 Interstate Blvd. S., which specializes in therapy for disorders affecting mouth and facial muscles that could impact speech, swallowing and chewing.

CEO Tim Eissinger said in a written statement that the nonprofit is always looking for ways to improve its practice, such as through this acquisition of a specialty service provider.

"DOM's exceptional skill set will be a valuable resource to the Anne Carlsen Center and the children and adults we serve," he wrote.

A news release said Dakota Orofacial Myology will stay at its current location with the same name, staff and services.

Anne Carlsen Center was founded in 1941 and served about 3,000 people in North Dakota last year.
