Cardinal Cushing Centers serves a diverse population of students and adults.
Almost all of our students and adults have some developmental or intellectual delays covering the full spectrum of functioning levels.
Many of our students also have secondary conditions including behavioral, emotional, and mental health concerns.

Students are offered a continuum of learning experiences including educational, prevocational, vocational, day and residential programs adapted to meet the needs of each student.
Both day and residential programs provide a full complement of supportive services including educational and vocational assessments, physical, speech, and occupational therapies, adaptive physical education, art and music therapies, and recreation.
