Our Approach







Therapeutic Day School

Our developmental preschool provides a natural classroom environment for children with typical peers, but with the added benefit of skilled teachers, speech therapists, physical therapists, occupational therapists and or other skilled behavioral specialists available to work within and alongside the classroom structure.

We believe in a multi-dimensional approach individually designed for each child. Based on the results of a comprehensive multi-disciplinary assessment, our team of professionals creates an individualized plan of care blending different and appropriate evidence based interventions, This plan is continually assessed and modified as needed in order to ensure each child continues to progress to his/her own maximum potential.
