  • 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. Ellenmorris 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.
  • Dr. Tiegerman believes 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.
  • Dr. Tiegerman believes that there are many generic special education programs which focus on teaching academic content.
  • She believes 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.

My son have not been at SLCD for a year yet and I already see a change this is the school that he needed he has a totally different outlook on school. My son is in the 5th grade and has disliked school since he started until he came to SLCD. All I could say is thank you SLCD for being in my sons life.
