School Notes

We offer three distinct programs:
  • A comprehensive, inclusive pre-K program for children ages 3-5 in which children with typical needs join with children with developmental and/or intellectual disabilities;
  • A school-age program exclusively for children and young adults ages 5-21 with these types of disabilities who are grouped by age and ability rather than grade level;
  • A state-licensed community habilitation program for adults 21 and older who are unable to secure employment because of the severity of their disabilities.
