Cheerful Helpers Therapeutic School

This preschool-1st grade program is for children, ages 3-10, with high-functioning autism, attachment disorders, developmental and processing delays, as well as learning and emotional difficulties. The developmental, relationship-based treatment approach is accomplished through a combination of educational, sensory-motor, communication, and family systems interventions. In addition to academics the school program includes art, music, movement, and yoga.Children attend school five days per week, in small language-rich classes, with a 1:2 staff to student ratio and a dedicated multi-disciplinary team of special education teachers and therapists. We have a wrap around approach, with a foundation in relationship building and respect for the individual growth of each child, that seeks to provide our families with many therapeutic services within their school day, as well as support in locating resources outside of our agency as needed. To that end, all parents participate in family therapy, as well as a weekly parent group. School-based occupational and speech and language services are also provided by licensed therapists as needed. And, when children are ready they are included in our twice-weekly social skills program.
