This preschool-kindergarten program is for children, ages 3-6, with high-functioning autism, aspergers, attachment disorders, developmental delays, and processing, learning and emotional difficulties.
The developmental, relationship-based treatment approach is accomplished through a combination of educational, sensory-motor, communication, psycho-dynamic and family systems interventions.
The children attend school five days per week, in small language-rich classes, with a 1:2 staff: student ratio and a dedicated multi-disciplinary team of special education teachers and therapists.
All parents participate in family therapy, as well as a weekly parent group.
School-based occupational and speech therapy are also provided as needed.
Cheerful Helpers is both a private and a fully certified Non-Public School (NPS)
