  • The John A. Coleman School, provides on-site special education for children in The Pediatric Center, a specialized nursing facility.
  • Children in The Pediatric Center suffer from acute and devastating illnesses, disabilities, and medical conditions that require them to require long term hospitalization.
  • New York Foundling started the Coleman School to support children whose severe disabilities prevented them from receiving education in a traditional environment.
  • The School provides education, and physical, play and music therapy to infants, preschool and school age children as well as a bedside program for children who are too medically fragile to come to a classroom setting.
  • While these children's cases are the most severe and restricting, they are also responsive to stimulating therapy and learning opportunities.
  • While they cannot be educated in the traditional sense, we constantly strive to improve their quality of life through interaction with their environment and with other children and adults.
