The Biscayne Academy provides the highest level of integrated support for a child with special needs on a year round basis.
Biscayne Academy services the health and educational needs of children ages 5 to 21 who have traumatic brain injury, cerebral palsy, autism, learning disability and other congenital disabilities and allows them to receive all education and medical care under one roof on an outpatient basis.
We operate 5 days a week for the academic year, August to June.
The school day starts at 9am and concludes at 3pm.
The Biscayne Academy provides an integration of cognitive, emotional and physical rehabilitation by licensed professionals including certified special education teachers, psychologists/neuropsychologists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, and social workers.
This integrated team provides an individualized program that addresses the whole development of the child/adolescent.
The Academy also believes that family involvement in the child’s education is crucial for success and parent training and support groups are offered here as well as other programs.
In addition to the school curriculum, student are offered dynamic opportunities to experience cultural programs that exercise the students’ mental and creative capacities.
Please visit our Grant page to explore the wonderful activities that our students have completed in the past!
