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.
