Berkshire Meadows

Berkshire Meadows is a private, non-profit, year-round residential school and program for people of all ages who are severely developmentally delayed and may be multiply disabled.
At Berkshire Meadows, we work to provide the best care and education that expertise, technology and experience can offer.
Our goal is for children and young adults to become as independent as possible, more self-sufficient and empowered, and better able to exercise some control over their own lives, and to function productively and happily as integral members of their family and the larger community.
