The Oakes Children's Center for their own autistic children over 40 years ago.
In 1962, there was no community-based educational program available for autistic children.
The only option at that time for these six pairs of parents was to institutionalize their own children.
These parents wanted a specially designed program that would provide an education for their children within a therapeutic context.
They met with local mental health professionals, developed a program and obtained a grant.
Much of the clinical staff volunteered and parents worked part time without pay in the classrooms.
The program became increasingly professionalized and over the years developed into a successful school that serves children with severe emotional and developmental disabilities.
Today, Oakes Children's Center continues to help developmentally delayed and emotionally disturbed children develop the independence and self-awareness necessary to live and continue learning in the least restrictive setting possible within their local community.
The mission of Oakes Children's Center is to help developmentally delayed and emotionally disturbed children develop the independence and self-awareness necessary to live and continue learning in the least restrictive setting possible within their local community.
We provide a very high teacher-to-student ratio and complete educational services, including: individualized curriculum planning, speech and language therapy, computer training, life skills, specialized reading instruction and swimming.
