Notes for Prospective Students
School For Lang & Comm Development is a place of miracles for
children with language and autism spectrum disorders.
SLCD has a
long and distinguished history, started in 1985 by Dr.
Tiegerman with 36 preschool children.
Since then SLCD has moved
three times and expanded its programs to include Middle and High
School Programs in Glen Cove and Woodside.
that children with language and autism spectrum disorders require a
highly specialized language immersion program (i.e., the Tiegerman
Language Method) to overcome their learning disabilities.
Tiegerman believes that there are many generic special education
programs which focus on teaching academic content.
that for children with language and autism spectrum disorders, the
traditional special education techniques are not effective enough.
SLCD's motto "Giving Our Children a Voice " reflects our goal to
meet the needs of preschool and school age children with severe
language and autism spectrum disorders.
We believe that students
with autism spectrum disorders have underlying language disorders.
