Special Education Services

Children participate in individualized instruction focused on pre-academic skills and kindergarten readiness in a specialized classroom or inclusive setting depending on strengths and needs of the child.

Pediatric Therapies:

Occupational Therapy

Licensed Occupational Therapists and Certified Assistants provide children with positive, fun activities to help them develop in the areas of self-help, fine and gross motor skills, oral motor, and play.

Speech and Language Therapy

Licensed Speech and Language Therapists and Certified Assistants help children develop their speech, language, communication, and oral motor skills to promote success in other programs, services, and settings.

Specialized Programs:

Autism Program

Children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder receive one-on-one treatment services in a specialized setting overseen by a Board Certified Behavioral Analyst (BCBA) in order to increase independence and readiness for an inclusive early education classroom and/or public school setting.

Behavioral Support Program

A Licensed Clinical Social Worker oversees the highly structured classrooms focused on specific skills related to emotional regulation, behavioral management, and/or interpersonal skills for children with a behavioral health diagnosis in order to improve the ability to participate in a less restrictive environment.

Family Services:

Parent Education and Support Groups

Education and Support Groups allow parents and caregivers to learn more about topics most relevant to raising a young child with special needs and seek support from others experiencing similar challenges.

Rehabilitative Community Support

Young children receive focused skill development in home and community environments in order to increase independence in functional living skills and promote consistency across all natural settings.

Targeted Case Management

Highly skilled professionals work directly with children with special needs and their families in the home and community by providing families with support and resources needed to access services.
